Women are looking for complimentary therapies to treat breast cancer
When Unite for HER founder Sue Weldon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
Unite for HER is helping women through their battle with breast cancer.
Since its establishment as a nonprofit organization in 2009, Unite for HER’s cornerstone has been to bridge that gap for breast cancer patients, focusing on wellness initiatives that will positively impact their health, as well as the health of all women and girls. This includes offering breast cancer patients access to wellness programs with complementary therapies and creating a personal plan for incorporating these fully-funded services into their treatment and recovery.
