River Parishes Hospital

LaPlace, LA

When we chose our pink glove dance song, What Makes You Beautiful, we immediately thought of one of our employees and friend, Carissima Torres. Carissima is a 3 ½ year cancer survivor. She was diagnosed at our hospital, underwent treatments, lost her hair – but stayed positive throughout it all. You know what they say, “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” and “beauty radiates from the inside out.” When someone is undergoing treatments for cancer, they usually suffer from nausea and often lose their hair. Even though they are going through this life-threatening experience, they need to stay strong, continue to fight and stay optimistic – just like Carissima did. Carissima is our role model, and she is well-known throughout our community. Our goal through this video is to give hope to other women who are battling cancer. We want them to know that they are still strong and beautiful, and they can overcome this disease.
