Mission: Building support through a community of individuals dealing with cancer or conditions causing an altered self-image. We aim to promote healing through outreach, advocacy, interaction, activity, resources and education.
Vision: To be a regional leader in improving quality of life for everyone affected by cancer or conditions causing an altered self-image.
We have pivoted to helping all patients with every type of cancer and their caregivers.
Who We Are:
Face2Face Healing was created in response to the gap that often occurs when medicine has done all it can, but individuals are left emotionally and/or physically unable to adapt to the resulting disfigurement or cancer.
Many individuals experience loneliness due to isolation and/or rejection. Regardless of why a face or body is different, the pain and distress can leave a person feeling alone, confused and unable to resume an active lifestyle.
While the healing process is slightly different for each person, the goal of Face2Face Healing remains constant, empower the individual with disfigurement to see their inner beauty and give them back their voice.
Face2Face Healing creates the support necessary to give individuals dealing with disfigurement or any type of cancer the opportunity to meet and share with others who know how they feel. We create a caring, sharing and supportive environment where individuals can connect and make an investment in each other’s lives.
What We Do:
We provide emotional support to clients and their caregivers with our in-person consultations or via our HIPAA compliant online counseling platform.
We feature survivor stories through our blog, Faces of Hope.
We reintroduce clients back into the community after they have been isolated.
We educate patients on programs available to assist in their recovery through our case management process. This included collaborating with their healthcare providers.
We prepare individualized patient care packages to make their hospital stays, treatment sessions or at home care more comfortable.
We provide support groups which provide a safe place to express feelings among people who understand what each other is going through. Support groups can ease some of the feelings of isolation that can separate patients from well-meaning, but anxious family members and friends.
