If Only For A Second

If you watched the Country Music Christmas show last week you saw a little girl get to meet Luke Bryan. Tatum is the greatniece of my best friend. Tatum's wish has been to meet Luke and the Make a Wish Foundation made it possible. The family was treated like royalty and Luke Bryan was so good to them. It's heartwarming to see people's kindness in the face of such tragedy and pain. 

Today I came across this post about another group that helps cancer patients. 

The Mimi Foundation is an organization for cancer patients whose goal is to make sure their patients’ personal and emotional needs are met, in addition to their medical needs. The foundation has centers in France, Belgium and Switzerland. Individuals are provided with a serene, relaxing atmosphere, psychological counseling, beauty treatments, and advice on ways to approach hair loss.
“If Only For a Second” is a book and accompanying video that documents an experiment in helping cancer patients to forget their illness, however briefly. For the project, twenty people were given over-the-top makeovers and asked to keep their eyes closed the entire time. When their transformations were complete, they were asked to open their eyes in front of a two-way mirror, on the other side of which sat a photographer.
The cover of the book "If Only For A Second".

The Mimi Foundation’s book of photos, titled “If Only For a Second,” is a wonderful example of such a project – watch here:

It's a hoot to see how the make-up and hair stylists made up these men and women. Even more fun to see their reactions. What a fun idea to take away the reality of cancer if only for a few seconds! God bless all who help to ease the suffering of others!
