Dear Friends, Family, members of the Nantucket Community & Cancer warriors,
This year will be my 6th year participating as either a speaker, volunteer or swimmer at SAA Nantucket. This is my favorite event of the year, my favorite charity to donate my time to and my favorite cause to promote.
This year I am taking on the 4-mile challenge in honor of my friend and yoga student Patty, who I have had the privilage of getting to know over the last year through our bi-weekly Yoga 4 Cancer Care classes at PASCON.
Having never swam more than a single consecutive mile in my life, this is an undertaking I'm pretty aprehensive about. I know though, that with your support I can get it done, just as with your support I was able to over come not one kind of cancer, but two.
By making a donation to my swim this year, you will help support those fighting cancer in our community today and ensure the people of NAntucket know there are already resources in place should a future battle with cancer come their way.
Hope has no finish line and we will never give up.
My Personal Web Log
Yoga 4 Cancer Care 2020
I am thrilled to a announce that bi-weekly Yoga 4 Cancer Care classes will start up again this week on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1-2pm.
Classes are open to patients AND their loved ones and are 100% free.
I do bring a collection of yoga mats from home, but encourage those who have mats to bring their own.
We were generously gifted some props (blankets, bolsters and blocks) last spring that go a long way to towards making seated poses on the floor more comfortable, however if you know you like additional cushioning or warmth you could always bring your own blankets.
For now our classes will meet at the PASCON office, re-located to the Anderson Building, next to Dr. Lepore's office. As our wellness offerings grow, I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to find a bigger space to host these classes. I have reached out to several local organizations, but if anyone has ideas about potential open spaces, please let me know.
With love and gratitude,
