 As an Integrative Health Coach, Michele promoted regular exercise to  boost mood, energy and strength . She was a lifelong runner and  notorious conga line proponent, that is why this event is the perfect  fit as our premier fundraiser.

Afterwards, join us for the 1  mile long Conga Line. (fun for every one from grand-kids to  grandma). It's going to be an absolute blast!

OUR WHY

image61

The good news is due to medical advances people are living longer with cancer . The bad news is there is limited access to meet emotional, physical, mental and financial needs of the patient. 

Long term side effects such as physical pain and dysfunction from chemo, radiation and surgery decrease quality of life.  

Prevent-Heal-Thrive fills that treatment gap.

OUR MISSION

To provide resources for affordable, evidence-based complementary cancer prevention, care, and after

To provide resources for affordable, evidence-based complementary cancer prevention, care and aftercare in conjunction with conventional medical treatment in Southeastern Connecticut.

OUR PLAN

Co


PREVENT- Conduct fun events for the general public that highlight whole body wellness and encourage healthy lifestyle changes.


HEAL- Subsidize adjunct therapies to reduce side effects during and after cancer treatment. 


THRIVE- Provide access to a practitioner network to offer integrative support for body, mind and spirit.
