Cancer Awakens Newsletter - February 2018

Message from Vijay

Thanks for all your positive responses to our January newsletter … always so nice to hear that our work makes a difference. This month, we celebrate the unsung heroes and heroines of cancer-care: the Caregivers. They are tossed into a daunting role with no warning, no training, no respite and often, no appreciation. Carrying an enormous burden, they swallow their own pain, smile cheerfully and be relentlessly positive, for the sake of the loved one AND the family. We salute them with the utmost respect.

Also to remind you that registrations are closing soon, for the 2nd SHERPA Training & Certification program, from 13-22nd April near Mumbai. If you or someone you know – survivor, caregiver or practitioner – feels called to help others become Cancer Thrivers, please share this message and ask them to contact us soonest.
