The Wellness Community Valley Ventura, Inc.
July 24, 2009

My daughter Nancy and I joined The Wellness Community Valley Ventura a few months after Nancy was diagnosed with Metestatic Brest Cancer to the bone. We had to learn how to deal with the "New Normal" since our lives would never be the same again. Nancy used to say going into TWC was like coming home, it was comfortable and made you feel good, also when dealing with cancer you don't want to thik about paying $15.00 for a Yoga Class, every thing at TWC is free of charge. Wednesday was Nancy's favorite night,it was when we went to our group meetings. Sshe wished that there were weeks where every night was a Wednesday and for her birthday her group made her a calander of a year of all Wednesdays. Though Nancy is no longer with us I still attend my Wednesday night meetings. It is where every one understands what we are going through and where I feel at home. I am involved as a board member and am happy to help in any way I can as this is a wonderful organization.
