BENEFITING: WAVES OF GRACE

EVENT: Pure Barre | Stronger Me. Stronger We. Giving Campaign

EVENT DATE: Aug 31, 2015

Pure Barre Franklin

THE STORY:

Waves of Grace was brought to Pure Barre Franklin by one of PB Frank's own family members and 6am warrior tucker, Jennifer Matwijec.

Waves of Grace was placed on our hearts on a drive home from a vacation at the beach about a year after my (Jennifer) mom passed away from stage IV gastric cancer. It's hard to even put into words a description about Waves because the whole idea of it leaves me speechless. Let’s start by telling you what the beach meant to my family when I was a child. We traveled to Orange Beach, AL, every summer for vacation. My parents had a condo there and we'd take off and go whenever we wanted. It was truly a blessing to be able to go on vacation to the beach and not pay for accommodations. I can't tell you how many times I stood in awe at the edge of the ocean and completely forgot about everything I had left behind at home. For a moment, my head was clear, my heart full of beauty and family, and I just felt nothing but gratitude for such a beautiful scene. We truly believe that the beauty of the ocean can heal. We want cancer patients and their families to leave cancer at home and experience rest, relaxation, hope, and peace, and return renewed ready for anything. Between my mom's chemotherapy treatments, she and my dad would take off and head to the beach. She would return strong and ready for the next round of chemo the following weeks. Mom always said she felt closest to God at the beach. There's just something about the ocean, waves, sand, shells, and sun on your face that just breathes life.
