IF ONLY FOR A SECOND by Mimi Foundation

20 cancer patients participated in a unique makeover experience. They were invited to a studio. Their hair and makeup were completely redone. During the transformation, they were asked to keep their eyes shut. A photographer then immortalized the moment they opened their eyes.

This discovery allowed them to forget their illness, IF ONLY FOR A SECOND.

One in three people are at risk of one day being diagnosed with cancer. It is very likely that every one of us is, or will be, faced with cancer, either directly or indirectly through a loved one. Because cancer treatments cause physical suffering that is detrimental to the morale, the physical state and the dignity of the patient. Because cancer must be fought on all fronts, not only medical.
