Incredible Makeovers Help Cancer Patients Forget About Their Illness, If Only For a Second

You know what I miss the most? Being carefree.

This statement is the inspiration behind the “If Only For a Second” project, a collaboration between the Mimi Foundation and Leo Burnett France.
Twenty cancer patients were invited to participate in a unique makeover experience. The results — which they could not in their wildest dreams have expected — made them forget about their illness and worries, if only for a while. The video has been posted widely on social networks, but we think it’s worth sharing again and again.

Goodlifer: Incredible Makeovers Help Cancer Patients Forget About Their Illness, If Only For a Second

The Mimi Foundation is a French Charity focused on ‘bringing sunshine into the lives of patients.’ Life is meant to be enjoyed, even (or maybe especially) when fighting a battle with cancer. This film is deeply moving a testament to the healing power of silliness and laughter. It really is the best medicine.

What constitutes the good life? It’s a question we’ve asked ourselves since the dawn of time and something we all strive for. To us, the good life is not a destination but a journey. We want to see more positivity in the world. Thinking happy thoughts makes for happy people, and happy people are more productive, innovative and at peace with the world. We believe in the transformative power of good news.
