This is such a wonderful service for anyone going through breast cancer. The Buddies or Practitioners are loving, kind, and supportive of your journey. The results show less pain, ease of discomfort from chemo/radiation treatments, and an overall sense of being loved and at peace.
The Service that Healing Touch Buddies provides for women (and men) dealing with breast cancer is not only wonderful, it is the necessary part of compassionate medicine that has been missing in our profession. I have been an oncology nurse for 23 years and a hospice nurse for 5 years. I am also a CHTP and a Healing Touch Buddy.....It has given me a chance to view both sides of the chemo chair. Enlightening, rewarding, and so needed. I finally feel like I am doing true nursing, with presence. Thank you Betty Ann!!!
