IF ONLY FOR A SECOND

Fri Dec 13, 2013, 12:53 PM

IF ONLY FOR A SECOND


Published on Dec 4, 2013


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.

Wonderful!!

You know, you can embed the YouTube video in your journal itself without having to provide a separate outgoing link.
Would you like me to send you the code?

As a cancer survivor, and as someone who's lost a family member to cancer in the past, I gotta say that this really speaks to me. It's great not only to see that these people can forget their troubles for a moment, but also that there are people trying to help them to do so. Very often we only think of treating the physical trauma in patients, but hardly the emotional. I personally want to wish them all the best with their treatments and the same for every other patient in this world.

it is beautiful, made me cry and smile at the same time. I have lost family through cancer, and my mum is still fighting breast cancer. We do not often enough think about how short life is, illnesss or not. One second of joy last so much longer than it actually is an it can give strength for may hours, days, weeks....
not sure that makes sense but thank you so much for sharing this, it made me think. which happens only ever so often ;)
and now I'm gonna phone my mum :D
