The Face of Cancer was founded by cancer survivor Holly Carter, owner of Fresno based Carter & Co. Communications. According to Holly, “As a cancer survivor, I found that there is not enough help available for women when it comes to dealing with the devastating impact cancer has on their sense of femininity and physical beauty. Many just give up. We are told to find joy and to stay positive to fight the disease. Yet, the loss of our sense of beauty and femininity is counterproductive to an optimistic state of mind.”
“Every woman battling cancer wants to be seen as a beautiful valiant warrior. That motivated me to start The Face of Cancer. Our Face of Cancer Fantasy Themed Photo shoot is a special program that will be a main focus of our fundraising efforts.”
The Face of Cancer is a non-profit, non-medical public service program that helps to provide female cancer patients support by addressing a particularly devastating part of their cancer battle, their physical appearance and the emotional toll it takes on her.
The Face of Cancer seeks to build a network of local firms who will provide services related to making cancer patients feel better about their appearance and help to restore their feeling of femininity and beauty. In addition, The Face of Cancer seeks to be a resource for women to find answers to questions they may have regarding options available that enhance their appearance as they go through the cancer battle.
Fundraising efforts will center on raising funds to help those who cannot afford the cost of these services.
