HI Team Concurrency! Inspired by Shawn Green, one of Concurrency's Account Executives in Chicago, we have chosen to support the Twist Out Cancer organization for our Holiday Community Outreach. Twist Out Cancer focuses on the emotional side of diagnosis, treatment and recovery of cancer, for pre-vivors, survivors, family members and caregivers.
There are three main ways that TOC supports this emotional journey:
1. Online - where survivors connect with community through sharing their testimony and putting out a challenge to them that supports them during their recovery
2. Brushes with Cancer Program - Survivors are paired with an Artist that creates a work of art to represent his/her journey. This is how Shawn found TOC
3. Twist Shops - educational workshops tailored to specific groups.
Donations go towards the TOC organizational budget, program materials and Twist Shop facilitators.
