Mission

Face2Face Healing was created in response to the gap that often occurs when medicine has done all it can but individuals are left emotionally and/or physically unable to adapt to the resulting disfigurement. We have pivoted to helping all patients with every type of cancer and their caregivers. Face2Face Healing creates a support network necessary to give individuals dealing with disfigurement or any type of cancer the opportunity to meet and share with others who know how they feel. We create a caring, sharing and supportive environment. The mission is to build support through a community of individuals with disfigurement or cancer. We aim to promote healing through outreach, interaction, activity, resources, advocacy and education.

Notes from the nonprofit

Face2Face Healing has been very helpful to various individuals with all types of cancer with and without disfigurement in Pittsburgh and the regional area. As we continue to grow, we have been able to expand our case management and counseling services, especially during COVID-19. Our goal is to advance the mission through continuing to combine professional knowledge and the highest quality of services in ways that best meet the needs and interests of our clients, families and their communities in an affordable way.

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Face2Face Healing was created in response to the gap that often occurs when medicine has done all it can, but individuals are left emotionally and/or physically unable to adapt to the resulting cancer with or without disfigurement. Each year thousands of people confront facial and bodily disfigurement from common causes including, birth defects, cancer, burns, facial palsy, neurological issues, injuries and trauma. Many individuals experience loneliness due to isolation and/or rejection. Regardless of why a face or a body is different, the pain and distress can leave a person feeling alone, confused and unable to resume an active life. We have pivoted to helping all patients with every type of cancer and their caregivers. Being diagnosed with cancer can bring a range of emotions, including anxiety, depression, grief and fatigue. These feelings can mean increased distress for patients and their loved ones.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Face2Face Healing creates the support network necessary to give individuals dealing with cancer with or without disfigurement the opportunity to meet and share with others who know how they feel. We create a caring, sharing and supportive environment where individuals can connect and make an investment in each other’s lives.

Face2Face Healing offers different ways for people to get support during their healing process. For those within a 2-hour drive of Pittsburgh, staff will visit them at home or at their doctor’s office so they can learn about what they need and get them resources to support their healing process. Video conferencing is offered for those who are more than 2 hours away so that staff can connect with patients, families, hospitals and other facial reconstruction teams.
We provide case management to assess the needs of the individuals and caregivers and collaborate with their healthcare providers to decrease the barriers in their survivorship.
Aside from support, Face2Face Healing also offers acupuncture, massage, yoga, and many other healing modalities. Each of these are free of charge for anyone that needs them. And for those who need more than just peer counseling, they are connected with professional counselors, psychologists and psychiatrists for one on one counseling.
Additionally, resources for patients, professionals, and family members are available while working with a case manager.

We have several staff that have the capabilities of providing the services. Karen Scuilli, Nurse, Dr. Adriane Deithorn, Licensed Psychologist, Susan Donnan, Licensed Social worker along with countless volunteers use their backgrounds to support all the services we provide.

• Identified an individual with disfigurement with a background in healthcare or social sciences who can act as a service coordinator, providing counseling and recruiting, training and supervising volunteers
• Increased contact and services to children and veterans
• Developed a service coordinator research training program which creates a template for the training of volunteers and professional to help people cope with disfigurement.
• We have began to use video, internet and interactive programs such as Vidyo to reach persons reclusive or unable to attend support programs.
