I hope this blog finds you well. I just wanted to take a few minutes to pass on some information in hopes that some of you may be interested in helping out.
As many of you know, I volunteer as a Reflexologist and Reiki Practitioner at HopeSpring Cancer Support Centre. What many of you may not know is how my journey at HopeSpring began…
My Aunt was diagnosed with cancer 15 years ago, but it wasn’t until the last few years that I became acutely aware of what my role in her journey was. My Aunt was one of my very first reflexology clients, and almost every time I went “home” for the weekend we found time for a session. In reflexology, she found comfort, she found relief, she found peace… If only for an hour, she found these things in reflexology. After our very first session, I must admit, I went promptly to my car and wept. It wasn’t fair. Cancer wasn’t fair. Her supportive husband and four beautiful children… Screw you cancer! …but after all my tears were dry, the reality was… THIS is reality.
I joined the HopeSpring team in hopes to create that same comfort, relief and peace for the clients as I did for my aunt. What I didn’t anticipate was the insurmountable amount of comfort, relief and peace I would gain from HopeSpring as a result. As much as HopeSpring needs the community for funding, the community needs HopeSpring for so many more reasons.
This February 25th marks the 8th annual Yoga for Hope, and I am so very proud to be participating this year!! “ALL proceeds go directly to HopeSpring. HopeSpring receives no funding from the government or The Canadian Cancer Society. It relies solely on the donations from the community.”
I am seeking pledges for as little as $5.00, AND as a thank you, those who make a donation of $5.00 or more by February 8th will be entered into a random draw for a 1 hour Reflexology/Reiki/Distance Reiki Gift Certificate ($60 value) at Blue Bamboo Holistics. Keep it for yourself, or gift it to someone else.
If interested, please email for more details. Payments can be made in cash, cheque, email transfer, paypal, and the good old honour system to be collected at a later date.
I started volunteering at HopeSpring in honour of my Aunt…. And now I volunteer in memory of her.
Thank you for considering,
