  Introducing The Face Of Cancer


When cancer strikes a woman, there are special and unique challenges she will need to face.

Cancer and its treatment can often change the way women feel about themselves. From chemo treatments, radiation and even body-altering surgeries, the physical changes to their bodies and the intense emotions that cancer can cause can lead to an unhealthy level of stress. 

Women may begin to feel as though they have no control over their life and feel they have suffered the permanent loss of their beauty and their femininity.

It is with this background that Holly Carter founded The Face of Cancer, an organization that is dedicated to helping woman who are fighting cancer learn how they can still have their femininity and beauty during and after their battle.

One way the Face of Cancer helps is by providing the patient with a fantasy photo shoot. An experience fit for a runway model is provided through the generosity of local businesses.

The cancer patient is given the task of choosing a theme of her dreams and the team works to emulate that theme on film. Fine gowns are provided, professional makeup artists volunteer their talent at local salons and professional photographers capture it all on film and video - all at no cost to the participant. It’s a day never to be forgotten.

According to The Face of Cancer founder Holly Carter, “As a cancer survivor, I found that there is not enough help available for women when it comes to dealing with the devastating impact cancer has on their sense of femininity and physical beauty. Many just give up. We are told to find joy and to stay positive to fight the disease. Yet, the loss of our sense of beauty and femininity is counterproductive to an optimistic state of mind. Every woman battling cancer wants to be seen as a beautiful valiant warrior. That motivated me to start The Face of Cancer. Our “Make a Wish” Face of Cancer Photo shoot is a special program that will be a main focus of our fundraising efforts.”
