Wellness wishes was an idea that was sparked by Sandie Walters sharing her frustration with the cost of healing stage 4 breast cancer. Sandie is a dear friend and like-minded passionate patient advocate for less invasive treatments of breast cancer.
Here is an excerpt of Sandie’s story:
The Cost of Treating Metastatic Breast Cancer
Although I have good insurance, my out of pocket expenses this year will probably top $20,000 (for such things as individualized molecular profiling, vitamin C IVs, organic food, supplements, massage therapy, yoga classes, and other natural healing remedies). There are others less fortunate than I who truly cannot afford the treatments they need. They either end up going bankrupt paying their co-pays for chemo or are denied promising integrative healing strategies due to lack of funds.
Sandie was the first to receive a $500 wellness wish scholarship which she used for several sessions with a holistic health practitioner. Among other healing protocols and nutritional counseling, Sandie was fortunate to learn and experience the healing benefits of meditation (which she had never done before). Sandie was so inspired that she wrote an article titled Meditation 101! Read Sandie’s article here.
