FIM's Mission is to visit patients with cancer in the hospital room as well as Infusion and pamper them. The patient receives a special time of pampering that consists of cleansing their face, moisturizing it, and doing a makeover as well as size the patient with a wig if they are losing their hair. All of this is provided for the patient at no cost. I have been part of FIM for 5 years and have seen first hand the impact this mission has had on the patient's personal life. The volunteer walks into the room and may find a patient distraught and in tears and when the volunteer has finished pampering and being available with a listening ear, the patient is renewed, relaxed, and life seems a little bit more manageable. An organization like FIM is one of a kind. Everyone is looking for a cure for cancer but are forgetting what we should be doing for the patient's with cancer NOW. FIM is the NOW for a patient with cancer. I am proud to be part of an organization that has touched so many patients and given them hope for tomorrow.
