2016 #GoBeyondPink to Help Women Surviving Cancer
Organized by: Michelle Slade
#GoBeyondPink: We know breast cancer exists - Let's DO something about it!
October 09, 2016
I am on a Mission to pay back & forward all the kindness and support I received that helped me give breast cancer the smack down.
This October, I hope you'll be inspired to join me in GOING BEYOND raising awareness to TAKING ACTION to help WOMEN SURVIVING CANCER especially those diagnosed 40 or younger, to “MOXIE UP & ON."
With your support, we can help these women cancer Survivors move further along their journey from fighting and surviving to thriving by:
- Providing CARE PACKAGES for women newly diagnosed and finishing active treatment;
- Sponsoring MOXIE MEET-UPs, opportunities for our Survivor Sisters to connect and support one another -- being in community with those who deeply get you and the roller coaster cancer journey helps with coping;
- Offering a SURVIVORS RETREAT: a healing getaway where participants will gain strategies for coping, improving their well-being and getting beyond a "new normal" to a better one; and
- Granting MoXie WISHES- cancer treatment can drain finances in addition to one's energy so we aim to raise enough funds to grant an annual "MoXie Wish" to help a Survivor Sistah recharge; past wishes granted for our Moxie Survivors include house cleaning services, pilates classes and a personal organizer.
Whether you are donating: $4, $40, $400 or another amount, your support is greatly appreciated and will make a positive difference for young women cancer Survivors!
Additional ways you can help include:
- Directly donating “goodies” for the care packages (find out items still needed by emailing me at: firstname.lastname@example.org); &/or
- Volunteering your time to offer a wellness-related service (e.g., massage, yoga, meditation, art activity, etc.) at the MoXie Meet-ups &/or Retreat.
THANK YOU so much for caring and your generosity!
