To create and reshape a world where hearts are healed, souls are empowered and love is shared.

First, we will start with our community.

True Beauty Foundation's long-term vision is 2-fold:

  • To build a sustainable facility that helps anyone in need that is struggling with issues related to mental and emotional health.
  • To build and provide a retreat and community out of the Calgary area that offers a place of comfort, relaxation and serenity where cancer survivors and their families can feel empowerd and find peace and unity during and after a cancer diagnosis in a stress-free environment.
