The FBT mission is to provide hope, love and encouragement to women of all ages affected by cancer through Arts in Health programs.
Feel Beautiful Today (FBT) uniquely uses the power of creativity to support women affected by cancer. The FBT foundation is a well established 501(c)(3) staffed by volunteers, skillfully guided by a diverse board of directors from the professional community, and partnered with many of the well known cancer treatment centers and hospitals in the metro Atlanta area. The organization is rooted in our understanding that recovery of physical health goes hand in hand with faith, a peaceful soul and a positive state of mind. The FBT mission is to provide hope, love and encouragement to women of all ages affected by cancer through Arts in Health programs. Each program takes a uniquely creative approach toward delivering the patient in crisis a critical boost in their overall well being. The programs remind them that they are much more than a body that is going through the physical changes due to treatment. We seek to assure them that they are not alone in their battle against cancer. By developing three programs that, separately and together, involve the patient and caregiver(s), the medical profession, and the community at large, FBT successfully delivers a positive message of hope, support, and emotional encouragement. Our activities deliberately complement the medical community’s effort to foster a positive healing environment for patients undergoing treatment.
