The 30 in 40 is a Karma Challenge is for individuals in the DharmaCycle Yoga community. They commit to living their dharma by attending 30 classes in 40 days while raising $10/class for Chown's Bucket List. Practicing mindful yoga and cycling brings more health to our bodies, clarity in our minds and joy in our hearts. This leads us to live empowered lives and as a community we will support Chown to do things that she has dreamed of. Our goal is to raise $10,000 for Chown through collective individual fundraising from July 23rd-August 31st.
Who is Chown and what is her bucket list?
Chown is a member of the DCY Community and she works at the studio and is a member of the DharmaFamily. In November 2013, doctors discovered a mass on her rectum. Chown was later diagnosed with rectal cancer. She was only 26 and newly married to her husband Matt Wucherpfennig. For the next few months Chown underwent several chemotherapy and radiation treatments, being sick, being in pain, going in and out of hospitals, and being away from her loved ones. Chown ultimately underwent surgery in May 2014. By the grace of God, Chown was given a second chance at life; something we all sometimes take for granted.
She just found out that her cancer has returned. Only this time the cancer is in both her lungs. Chown has been diagnosed with stage IV cancer. Her doctor says it's treatable but not curable. Chown meets with her oncologist on August 13th and a treatment plan will be discussed as to how to prolong her life.
Chown has a bucket list she would love to fulfill. As a community we will help her fulfill it. Continue to share her story and let's make it happen for her. Any amount and all prayers are greatly appreciated. All proceeds will help Chown do all the things she loves!
