Reviews for The Galen Foundation dba PeopleBeatingCancer

Rating: 5 stars  

I am a Licensed Aesthetician I help cancer patients in treatment for free. I help cancer patients with tying scarves if they don't want to wear a wig, skin consultations and make up to draw on eye brows and also make it look like they have lashes. I am also an Advanced Master Clinical Hypnotherapist and do visual imagery for healing and also do Sound healing for patients. I have done this since 1989 I started at UCSF I was the co coordinator in San Francisco for the American Cancer Society and then the coordinator in Marin County for the Cancer Society I stopped for awhile because I had too much going on with family and then moved up north in 2004 we don't have a program here so I have been trying to get word out that I do this. I have decided to have my own program because the American Caner Society would only let me do one thing with patients and that was make up and some patients want something different other than make up I have seen so many heal when you look great you feel great. When I work with visual imagery I work with the subconscious on a healing level so when you feel great inside about yourself and think positive that is extremely healing and it is amazing work and I love it.

I professionally serve a population of cancer survivors and their families. The Galen Foundation has provided an excellent place of resources to fit individual needs for the population they serve. It's hand-on practical insight on how to improve the quality of life of individuals who are currently going through various stages of their cancer journey. Psycho-social support is key to a positive attitude and outcome. Congrats to The Galen Foundation to meeting the needs of their constituents.
