Cancer survivor Cookie Aftergut of Dunwoody, Ga., is bringing "Chemoflage" to Columbus at 11 a.m. July 15. This lunch and learn session will be at the John B. Amos Cancer Center of Columbus Regional, 1831 Fifth Ave.
Based partly on her own experience with cancer therapies, and those of others, Aftergut founded the organization to help women feel better about themselves during cancer treatment. She and other experts teach the women about complementary clothing, using make-up, proper nutrition, mental health and other issues that often come up during treatment.
Aftergut is a breast cancer survivor, and was honored last summer as a "Woman of Spirit" by Morton's Steakhouse of Buckhead. She founded Chemoflage in 2006.
