The following video which covers what a photographer did for patients suffering from cancer reminded me that creating moments of joy in life for others can make a difference. Also, that especially during this season, there is much we can do to bring a smile to those who need it the most.
“Find a place inside where there’s joy, and the joy will burn out the pain.”
“Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give.”
The video was produced by the Mimi Foundation’
“The Mimi Foundation is convinced that cancer must be fought on all fronts, not only on the medical front. The well-being of patients during their treatment plays a decisive role in their struggle to survive, to give them both courage and strength.
The Mimi Foundation has made it its mission to contribute to the improvement of the quality of life of people affected by cancer, more specifically during the entire period of their chemotherapy/radiotherapy treatment.
The physical suffering and emotional stress associated with cancer can be enormous and often originates from the side effects of the treatment.
The Mimi Foundation is available to patients during these difficult times in order to provide both physical and moral support.”
