Here is a great opportunity for you to make a difference. With your help on May 4th, more people touched by cancer can experience the inspiration and hope that comes from attending a Healing Journeys event that supports healing, activates hope, and promotes thriving.

The Big Day of Giving (Big DoG) is an annual event to help focus our attention on the many non-profits that are doing good work in our communities. This will be the first year that Healing Journeys is participating in this event, and I’m excited to see the results. The Big DoG is May 4th.

Every hour on that day the organizers are giving away two prizes of $1,000 each, one to the non-profit that receives the most money during that hour, and one to the non-profit that receives the most donations during that hour. I am optimistic that we could receive the most donations if we all do it during the hour between 11 a.m. and 12 noon (Pacific Time). We can do it if each person reading this makes a donation during that hour. We need your help!

The projects that will be made possible this year through your donations include:

  • Filming and making DVDs of the Cancer and Nutrition workshop on June 17th in Sacramento, CA;
  • Free mini-conference, Cancer as a Turning Point™, September 9th in Eureka, CA;
  • A day of Stories of Healing in October in the San Francisco Bay Area, featuring several speakers who have used different strategies to overcome or manage different kinds of cancer.

In last month’s eNewsletter, I shared how inspired I was by Nasha Winters’ story of healing. She was diagnosed at age 19 with Stage 4 Metastatic Ovarian Cancer. Twenty-five years later, as a Naturopathic doctor specializing in cancer, she is teaching others how to use the tools she learned to manage her own cancer. Dr. Winters will be presenting at the Stories of Healing day. Stay tuned to hear who else will be sharing their healing stories.

I’m excited about planning these programs, anticipating the benefits that so many will experience. Your financial support will make it possible. Please remember to make your donation to Healing Journeys on May 4th between 11 and 12 PT at
. By donating just $15 (or more), you can help us win an additional $1,000! And please invite your friends and relatives to join you. Together we will make a difference.

If you won’t be available on May 4th to participate, you may make a “scheduled donation” right now and until May 3rd. It will be processed on May 4th. You won’t be able to choose the time it’s processed, but it will count in our total and will help so many.
