In September of 2016, I lost my dearest friend Naz, at the age of 51, to breast cancer after she fought for her life for a year and a half. She was a woman who believed in spiritual and holistic services as a supplement to medical treatment in order to help women with their fears, depression and enormous stress during and after breast cancer treatments. You Can Thrive was an organization that helped her and other women in advanced stages of breast cancer, through retreats and other services of care not available through the medical system. This fundraiser campaign was created to honor Naz's spirit, her dedication to the holistic community, her love and practice of energy healing modalities and to the breast cancer community at large. You Can Thrive is a local New York City organization that helps support women with breast cancer with holistic care and treatments. I had the honor and privilege to know many of these women, to work with them and to see the importance of having a place to go to relax, release, heal and connect to others traveling this path.
