About the Event
WHAT IS SMILE?
SMILE is a collaborative project between The Lewis Foundation and Naturally Tribal Skincare. The initiative is simply to put a SMILE on Patients' Faces by doing something tangible, something fun, unique, different, and results-driven. Following a cancer diagnosis, finances are one of the first hits that patients experience and SMILE aims to make it easier in so many ways.
There certainly is an emotional gap for cancer patients out in the community when they are away from the hospital setting.
SMILE aims to help address this gap for the patient, engage, and put a smile on patients, families, and carers' faces, with a special focus on reaching diverse populations. SMILE welcomes any race, gender, disability, or sexual orientation and supports all cancer patients and their caregivers.
SMILE will focus on two aspects:
- Running blended online/face-to-face workshops and events, within the community specifically for cancer patients, their families, and carers
- The provision of well-being kits is made available to adult cancer patients who are either at home or in the hospital regardless of means/affordability.
We now commence the launch of the SMILE Project in the Milton Keynes area thanks to funding by Milton Keynes Community Foundation. Their Transformation Grant will enable this project to run for a period of 12 months. This means that participants can attend this event and receive a wellbeing kit for FREE as a result of this funding.
