HERSHEY, Pa. - May 11, 2021 - PRLog -- It's time to make Feeling Beautiful ( our priority. Let's bring renewal to cancer patients together. Cancer is difficult. Treatments and side effects can be devastating—physically, emotionally, and spiritually.

Feeling Beautiful is launching as a program service of Cancer Recovery Foundation International,, a 501c3 non-profit, with a 30-year award-winning record whose mission is to equip patients to survive cancer.

Feeling Beautiful complements conventional cancer treatments by:
  • Providing and teaching self-care and wellness principles
  • Helping manage appearance-related issues
  • Developing a more positive and confident sense of self

Understanding Our Sense of Self

Feeling Beautiful ( is grounded in and based upon the practices of self-image psychology. We believe holding a positive sense of self is one of the most powerful practices cancer patients can adopt. If this interests you, you have come to the right place and we extend a personal invitation to learn more.

If you cannot donate at this time, please SHARE!! All donations to Feeling Beautiful will be restricted to the program and to providing emergency financial assistance to cancer patients in need.

Why Self-image Matters

Cancer is difficult. From the moment of diagnosis, through difficult treatments, often excruciating side effects, and an uncertain future, the toll can be devastating to body, mind, and spirit. Patients may start to believe themselves to be weak, overwhelmed, and not up to the work of recovery. A downward spiral in well-being often results.

O. Carl Simonton, M.D. (1936-2014), the father of modern psychosocial oncology, was a radiation oncologist who popularized the mind-body connection in fighting cancer. Early in his medical career, Simonton noticed that patients given the same dose of radiation for similar cancers had different outcomes. When he looked into why, he concluded that people who had a more positive self-image generally lived longer and had fewer side effects.

Simonton described the preferred self-image of a cancer patient as "confident warrior." He taught patients to visualize their bodies fighting cancer cells — and winning the war. Today the use of imagery has been repeatedly observed in a series of clinical trials to reduce stress, depression, manage pain and ease side effects, in addition to creating feelings of being in control.
