WholeBodyMFR partners with Lucys Love Bus
Few things impact a person’s life more significantly than the diagnosis of cancer. When I was diagnosed in 1999 with a rare type of Hodgkin’s lymphoma, I knew my life would never be the same. The physical, mental, emotional, and financial aspects of dealing with such an illness was to say the least, overwhelming.
I was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering. The cancer center offered many complementary therapies to augment my intense and radical oncology treatment. Ultimately, my oncology treatment is what cured me of my disease. However, the supportive care of massage therapy and other complementary therapies got me through each day. I knew then I wanted to dedicate a portion my professional career to working with cancer patients and provide them with the loving, nurturing, supportive care that I received as a patient.
I’ve dedicated my practice to working with patients with chronic pain and illnesses. I have found that the oncology training, Myofascial release therapy training, and my personal experience as a cancer patient have prepared me to work closely with this population.
I am committed to treating cancer patients, and have worked diligently over the last few years to find the necessary funding to support this work on sustainable and ongoing capacity.
I am fortunate to be partnering with an amazing organization, Lucy’s Love Bus, that believes that Children with Cancer should receive access to complementary therapies. If you have a child that has been diagnosed with cancer and is under the age of 21, he/she would be eligible to receive complimentary Myofascial Massage Therapy. Please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org or 802-318-5891, if you know of a child that can benefit from my services or have any questions about this program.
