Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health

Mission: IMPROVE THE OUTER WELL-BEING OF CANCER PATIENTS

Results: We were located at St. Joseph’s Medical Center Center taking care of Oncology patients (women & men). At St. Joseph’s our volunteers visited Barrow's Neurological where we cared for the brain tumor patients and also visited patients who were receiving Radiation. We also had a relaxation room where patients could receive soothing facials or relaxing hand and foot massages outside of the hospital room environment. FIM also has a children's outreach, All About Us Kids, which served the children at Phoenix Children's Hospital and Maricopa Integrated Systems, seeing the child from the burn unit and all other childhood diseases. AAUK pampered the children and their mothers, provided them with toys, manicures, and games.

Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 4,000 cancer patients

Geographic areas served: Phoenix-metropolitan area

Programs: Provide a monthly "In Celebration of Life" Tea Party for the Cancer Patients, where hundreds of patients have found a day away from the medical worries, meet new friends, and truly celebrate life.

It has been my honor now for almost 10 years to serve as the Funder of the FIM Mission. My volunteers are people who live to serve others. My supervisors; daily take our Mission to over 100 cancer patients weekly and are Angels on earth. The Board that I serve with are giving, strong, powerful, people each with their own amazing lives and hearts full of compassion and passion.
I realize this is supposed to be submitted by others. But from Founder with a promise made to my sister who died of cancee, through the yeas on the amazing journey, to now over 30,000 lives touched, I have served and remain as a volunteer and think of myself not above that. We are all together on a special Mission. That is to take love, and essential touch to the person suffering and surviving the dreaded disease of cancer. We give back dignity and build back self esteem, leaving the with a "I Can" smile and a heart full of hope. FIM medicine is not found in the doctor's books, but recognized by many as being as important to recovery and as important as the one that is found in a medicine bottle.

There is only ONE Mission out there taking love, attention, pampering, giving back dignity and building hope ...and that is Face In The Mirror. Medicines are necessary to make the journey with cancer, but this organization is there by the side of the patient while they take infusion, after being diagnosed and often the last person they might see before being taken off to Hospice. Even there their Mission can be found. I know that the volunteers are the highest form of humanity. They live to give life thru touch and hope thru word, and dignity thru a clean shave or a beautiful facial and makeover. The little woman all alone can now feel comfort in the hands of one of these angels who come to only give comfort. A foot and hand massage is a spa day to those who have never known one! This are not enough words to express what this organization does for humanity going thru their storm of cancer. They need to be in every hospital across the USA.
