T.H.I.S Day Fund - Free Reiki for Cancer Patients
The Inspiration - There's Hope In Sight!
The THIS Day Fund, (There's Hope In Sight), was inspired by an event I sponsored a few years back, for cancer patients at the American Cancer Society's Hope Lodge in Boston. My wish is for every cancer patient to have hope and healing in sight. The fund is designed to provide comfort, hope, and healing via free Reiki treatments during the course of a cancer patient's illness. And, if the fund takes off the way I'm expecting, we'll be able to sponsor THIS Day community events throughout the city.
The Fund In Action
Cancer patients who are unable to afford Reiki treatments will simply send a request via a form (coming as soon as we have funds available), on this website to receive Free Reiki treatments at participating Wellness Centers in Boston and surrounding areas. They will then be matched with a practitioner in their area or one who is willing to travel to the hospital where the patient is receiving treatment.
Why Not Just Get it at the Hospital?
Many hospitals in and around the city and throughout the state and country for that matter, do offer free reiki to patients. Unfortunately, the options to patients are somewhat limited as they are 100% staffed by volunteers. I have been one of those volunteers and am quite familiar with the programs. It's fantastic that patients have this option but I wanted to offer another option with this fund. I created this fund and service as an option after hearing and witnessing so many patients who wanted Reiki and couldn't receive it either because they are an outpatient or there just wasn't a practitoner available. Also, so many cancer patients who are on outpatient treatment do not feel inspired to stay in the hospital any longer than they have to. The service provided through this fund allows patients to travel to a local wellness center or receive a home visit.
Your donations will be used for Reiki treatments in the Boston cancer community and to sponsor THIS Day events throughout the city . These events will be free to the cancer community and their families and will include a Vision Board Workshop, Reiki Treatments, Paraffin Therapy, Seated Massge, Acupuncture, Nutritional Guidance and more.
