Mission Statement

OUR MISSION
To encourage and promote the psychological and outer well-being of cancer patients to overcome their personal battle by realizing that,
"when we look better, we feel better;
when we feel better, the healing process begins."

OUR COMMITMENT

Face in the Mirror is committed to a very personal and supportive philosophy of improving the outer well-being of cancer patients who continue to face the challenges of their disease. As the patient's outward appearance declines from chemotherapy, medications, and radiation, one's morale and mental toughness can suffer greatly. As confirmed by Internist, Dr. Arthur Pelberg of Phoenix, Arizona, "How you look, directly affects how you feel. We know there is a direct correlation between a person's emotional and physical health. Illness can consume ones energy; appearance can easily fall by the wayside. Helping a patient look better can give them the extra boost they need to actually be better."

Description

Face in the Mirror reaches out to women and men of all ages with all types of cancer. Our goal is to encourage and give hope in the midst of life's personal storm by enhancing the outward beauty, thereby contributing to the patient's sense of well being. Face in the Mirror's outreach provides the following gifts and services:

  • Botanical and chemically free Facial cosmetics and skin care products tucked into a beautiful linen drawstring bag. Bag is embossed with our signature carnation and logo.
  • A hand massage with a kind word to add relaxation to the stressful day of
    medication and loneliness. Or just to sit and hold her hand.
  • A lovely comfortable wig or scarf to add that little personal touch of
    beauty or confidence.
  • A beautiful personal mirror, given with the hope that one day she may look at herself and say, "the face in the mirror is still me...She's still me!"
