Review for The Foundation For Living Beauty, Pasadena, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The Foundation For Living Beauty is about "Educating, uplifting and empowering women in their fight against cancer."
The retreats that we are able to attend are truly gifts from god as they heal us both physically and mentally. Our minds, bodies, and spirits are nurtured as our essence becomes enhanced. We are each made to feel beautiful as we become empowered by the realization of the strength we possess. We are celebrated as individuals, and forever united as sisters as we are made to feel that we are all "Living Beauties".
At my first “Living Beauty” retreat I felt so confident that on the 3rd day during our Restorative Yoga class I took the scarf off my head for the very first time in public. As everyone around me applauded I started to cry and immediately my fellow “Living Beauties” joined me. It was at that moment that I understood the true meaning of sisterhood and a lifetime bond was forged. Although no words were spoken I heard each one of my fellow “Beauties” thoughts. The love, support, acceptance and understanding that I felt were so overwhelming that although I was completely bald, I truly felt beautiful. I am honored to be a "Living Beauty". http://livingbeauty.org/

Review for Wespark Cancer Support Center, Sherman Oaks, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Going through Breast Cancer treatment is hard enough. But when you have others that understand what your feeling makes coping a little easier. The therapy sessions that I attended helped me through this very difficult time and allowed me to express my inner most thoughts. The women I have met have been great and the entire staff is wonderful. The classes that are offered to us like yoga, help heal us both physically and mentally. To have a local center that offers so many services to women going through cancer is a contributing factor to all of our healing.
