Lipstick Angels' mission is to strengthen the dignity, hope, and self-esteem of individuals with cancer or other chronic illness
Lipstick Angels provides a clean-beauty and wellness program that restores dignity, hope, and self-esteem to cancer patients by offering personalized, oncology-sensitive beauty and skin care services in hospitals at patients' bedsides. Lipstick Angels programs allow hospitals to offer a holistic experience to their patients by addressing some of the physical and emotional struggles that arise on the cancer journey. So many patients experience dramatic physical changes, overwhelming emotions, and loss of identity. Lipstick Angels works by offering patients the opportunity to experience a variety of spa services such as moisturizing facials, comforting hand massages and make-up applications, including rebuilding eyebrows, as well as the equally important opportunity for intimate connection, attention, and distraction from debilitating treatments.
While working in the medical field, making a patient smile made my heart sing.
When my mother was in the hospital from lung cancer, I always made sure her nails were painted and her make-up was on. Her last words to me were "I'm gorgeous"! I can't think of a better reason then that. Sincerely, Tricia Fredman
