I am a young woman recently diagnosed with breast cancer. I attended a wellness event hosted by Unite for Her and learned about the services that were available via the organization's voucher program. So far, I've had a therapeutic massage and a grocery store tour and cooking demonstration by their awesome nutritionist. This organization promotes health and treating not only cancer but the person as a whole so we can live long, healthy lives! I'd recommend them to anyone who has been diagnosed with cancer and wants to lead a healthier life.

Unite For Her was a suprising and welcome resource at a challenging time. I continue to use and share The Cancer-Fighting Kitchen by Rebecca Katz. I was also able to use my free farm-share to make many of the nutritional and delicious recipes in this book. FYI, Rebecca Katz has a new cookbook, The Healthy Mind, which I just ordered for myself and my cousin.

In addition to a free cookbook, a free farm-share, and a free six month YMCA membership, I also received coupons to use for acupuncture and a thirty minute nutritional consult. I would not have been able to afford any of these resources without the support of this organization.

I personally was shocked by the cost of medical care, even with "good" insurance. Unite For Her was a bright light in an otherwise challenging time in my life. I am forever grateful.

Unite for Her provided me the opportunity to do acupuncture and massage during treatment, that I wouldn't have been able to afford otherwise, which was extremely beneficial to both my physical and mental health. They also provided me with organic vegetables during the summer I was undergoing treatment which meant I always had a healthy option in my kitchen without having to make the trip to the store if I wasn't feeling up to it. I'm so grateful for everything they do and HIGHLY recommend their organization.

Unite For Her helped me through a very difficult time. I learned a great deal about various healing modalities and was provided access to them through coupons, workshops, etc. It was very empowering. Since then, I have worked with UFH in various fund raising activities. The energy and enthusiasm of the volunteers is incredible. It is an incredible organization.

My day with Unite for Her was wonderful. I learned so much and received so many great coupons which helped me immensely. More than that it was so good to be with other women going through or went through the same experience I did. Having breast cancer is when you really need to talk to others with it and feel a connection with them.
That's the benefit of Unite for Her. What a warm and caring group of people.

After going through treatment for breast cancer, Unite For Her was a breath of fresh air. It was wonderful to be pampered. The massages, the organic vegetables for 26 weeks, the vouchers for accupuncture, vouchers for yoga lessons and a voucher for a facial. Plus, I had someone come to my home and prepare five different meals. The meals were quick, good for you and tasted great. It was a great experience and to know there are people out there that care so much to want to make you feel so special. My hat goes off to them and many thanks for helping me get back to a norm.

Unite for HER was the most uplifting experience!p during a downtrodden time! My mother has passed, I have no sisters and a house full of males who love me, but are not female. Unite for HER presented a sisterhood when I most needed it. Not a pity party, but a united front where we gained strength from one another and cheered each other's efforts. No words can truly express my gratitude for the support, massages, organic vegetables, beauty classes, education, and the list goes on. This organization MAKES A DIFFERENCE!

I can't say enough positive things about this organization. They were introduced to me at Paoli Hospital at the time of my mastectomy, and have been a constant in my life since. They have amazing people and programs to help you get through the most difficult time. They have helped me with emotional support, nutrition, massage and so many more aspects of my recovery. This is an amazing group and I feel so privileged to have them in my life.

This is a wonderful organization who provides support and resources for breast cancer patients. The participants are caring and encouraging and are proactive in providing services that help improve the quality of what is a devastating time. Knowing that others care and are there to assist is priceless. They have a dedicated team and a wonderful group of contributors who donate their time and services and truly want to make a difference in the recovery period for these women. So often during treatment, you feel far from normal, but having others who want to help in some small way is makes it just a little easier. They truly are a blessing.
