Our Inspiration

Charlotte Mae McCracken, my sister, lost her battle with breast cancer in 2004. In visiting, I noticed her sitting with, shoulders drooped and spirits gone. I suggested we "play" by giving her a facial makeover and she said, "you can't help me look better," I said "yes I can" she smiled and accommodated me. I began by adding a little color to her lips, eyebrows, and cheeks. I brushed her wig and said to her "now look at you!" she looked at herself in the mirror and said, "I look pretty, take my picture". She was rejuvenated, I was thrilled! In the midst of our celebrating and taking photos she stopped and said "promise me you will do this for others" and I ask why, her words still haunt me today, "because no one cares what you look like when you're sick" I made her that promise and Face In The Mirror was born. 

Face In The Mirror began in March of 2004 as a 501©3 giving Hope Beyond Cancer. Since that day, over 50 thousand have been visited. The Mission continues today and somehow, I think she sees it and smiles. 



In loving memory,
