How and Why We Help

Face In The Mirror began out of the love between two sisters. Barbara MacLean was visiting her sister Charlotte McCracken, suffering from breast cancer. Trying to help her sister feel better she suggested a facial makeover. When finished, there was such an emotional and psychological lift to Charlotte that she said to Barbara “promise me you will do this for others”, adding the words “because no one cares what you look like when you’re sick”…Barbara made that promise. Charlotte lost her 10 year battle on September 8, 2001. Shortly following, Barbara, staying true to her promise, began the journey of what was to become, Face In The Mirror.
