#GivingTuesday 2019

Cancer treatments save lives. Today nearly 70% of those diagnosed with cancer will survive. But, cancer treatments can leave life-altering, long-lasting and debilitating side effects. These side effects – like bone loss, lymphedema, cancer-related fatigue, scar tissue, anxiety – impacts quality of life, increases costs to both individuals and institutions and can lead to cancer recurrence or mortality. Yoga has been proven to be an effective way to manage those side effects and improve the quality of life for cancer patients and survivors.

My organization, yoga4cancer, has been focused on minimizing those side effects and improving the lives of countless survivors for nearly two decades. Our work and the support we provide rely entirely on donations and grants. Our recent publicity on Good Morning America (still buzzing!!) increased the volume of cancer survivors looking for support.  Sadly, those survivors face one of the hardest side effects – financial toxicity of cancer.  Therefore, to maximize access and support the most vulnerable in our world, our classes and resources are offered for free. So we want to ask you for your support this Giving Tuesday and holiday period.

Matching Grant!
We are grateful and honored to receive a matching donation. This cancer survivor has witnessed the impact yoga4cancer on her recovery and the other survivors she has met… and wants cancer patients and survivors everywhere to find the strength, health, joy and life that she has found. We are grateful for every penny we can raise but this makes it even more exciting.  As any donation during this period is automatically doubled.  Your donation DOUBLES the amount of help, hope and support we can provide cancer patients and survivors. 🙏

Please make your donation online here or send a check to Yoga4Cancer Foundation, PO Box 1235, Stowe, VT 05672.  All donations are fully tax deductible.

I appreciate your consideration and look forward to helping more cancer patients and survivors with your support.

Namaste,
