"Even with health insurance, being treated for cancer is expensive. Being a cancer survivor is expensive, too. The scans we're supposed to have each year cost thousands of dollars. Dealing with the healthcare/insurance bureaucracy takes long hours and lots of energy. When I was undergoing treatment last year and my doctors would ask at every visit how I was managing my stress, I'd give them the stink eye. It was all I could do to get out of bed and get myself to the infusion center or my radiation appointment. As much as I needed to slow down and calm down, there was no time. Having cancer is a tiring full-time job. With a lousy salary.
Going to a Wind River Cancer Wellness Retreats retreat was healing for my mind, body and spirit. My weekend with Shannon Carney and Dave Pschirer and my fellow survivors was really the first chance in five months I'd had to catch my breath. Life at Wind River moves at a gentle pace. We did yoga, Tai Chi, hiked, painted, ate healthy food (and learned to cook it!), had healing touch, shared our stories, laughed and cried together. And none of it cost me anything. I'm so grateful to 24 Foundation for making it all possible. My doctors may have saved my life, but Wind River made me want to live again."

Wind River Musical Meet-Up
Join Wind River for a musical meet-up in Greenville, SC. Wind River will buy any survivor's ticket to Play It Forward. One of the feature musicians is the talented son of our own Cheryl Lecroy! (Shannon will reimburse you at the event - tickets available at the door).
Sun. Dec 2nd

Play it Fwd is an event created by students at the Fine Arts Center hoping to raise awareness and funds for Autoimmune Encephalitis. This nonprofit organization helped the Shriver Family when Luke was first diagnosed, treated, and cured of the neuroimmune disorder. It's time to Play it Fwd.

Not complicated and not expensive. Shannon and Cheryl will match you with someone including their name and address and ask that you send them some holiday love through the mail. Under $10. Could be something you made, a bar of fancy soap, maybe a small jar of Lavender oil or some other favorite scent. AND send them a card with a message of love, hope, inspiration or just something that will bring on a laugh!
Also, we have two Market - Pop Ups in December (in Charlotte) where you can join us and get some great gifts. See our calendar for more details (December 1st at Lenny Boy Brewing Co. 12pm - 6pm / and December 16th at Haley's Healing Arts Studio 12pm - 4pm)
If the $10 and postage is out of your budget range, just let us know that and we will find a way to make it work! ;)

And please, do not hesitate to click the box that allows YOU to receive something. Too often we do not put ourselves first. This is a chance to say YES, I would like some Wind River love too!
