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.

Yes! Great video. You don't want to know where I found it- it was on AOL, Fox News- horribly mundane places :) Still- it is awesome! Hug

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.
