Carina joined Face in the Mirror as a volunteer in 2011 and became Patient and Volunteer Director in 2012. She oversees and is also paramount in the visitation of over 2000 cancer patients annually.

Her loving heart and  giving spirit is described by many of “her” patients as being an “angel”. Her daily Mission is to bring love, attention, and beautiful calm to each one she touches, and it works!  She says it is an “honor” to do what she does, and nothing in the world brings her more JOY than serving others.

Carina is sacrificial in her attention to the patient giving her love and service to those who need her, five days a week. Often times, never stopping for a break, so that as many AS POSSIBLE can be given hope DURING THEIR STORM IN LIFE.
Carina is the Patient and Service Supervisor with FIM’s partners,  St Joseph Medical Center, Barrow Neurological, and the University of Arizona Cancer Center. She is responsible for training new volunteers. Her daily journey takes her into all other oncology departments through out the hospitals. Visiting Women and Men, she brings smiles, love and personal care to many.

Carina is also a devoted mother and grandmother, and wife. Her love all she comes in contact with is contagious, and Face in the Mirror and the cancer patients which are visited by her are changed for the better because of her dedicated and loving spirit.

She lived in Los Angeles for 16 years and returned to Scottsdale to be with her mom and take care of her. Jill is a licensed esthetician and very experienced with skin care and make up.

I am an Arizona girl, mom of 5, and Nanna of 10 grandchildren. They are my love and are 1st in getting my time and care. However, I have joined Face in the Mirror, since becoming a cancer survivor. A super FIM- in- a- pink- coat- volunteer came to meet and share with my friend, Sandy, at the hospital when I drove her there for radiation. We were very happy to learn about FIM. Sandy invited me to the Tea, and there I found what I had been wanting to find: a way to share and help others making a similar journey to mine. It has been a blessing to be able to give another a little lift, a spot of sunshine in a hospital setting. -Ginna
