Salute allo Specchio (SAS), the brainchild of Dr Valentina Di Mattei and Dr Giorgia Mangili, recently celebrated the first anniversary of this important project. SAS is committed to finding and re-instilling the smile and self-confidence to all women treated at the Department of Oncology at San Raffaele Hospital in Milan, Italy.
Regular meetings with medical and esthetic professionals – doctors, psychologists, experts in body image (skincare, makeup, hair, fashion) help women regain their femininity.
The blurred image of the person in the mirror resumes, thanks to this team, and a blend of both worlds starts to provide shape and brightness to their psyche. During these few hours spent with the medical and esthetic professionals the image that was believed lost forever resurfaces in the mirror.
Oncology Training International (OTI) – Italy is a proud partner is this project, headed up by Italian Director Angela Noviello.
