With social distancing in place due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we wanted to make sure we provide you, the cancer community, with resources to keep you all informed on the latest with COVID-19 and online support groups from Elephants and Tea and the fantastic organizations we partner with.

Wellness and Mindfulness Resources

Free Drop-In Virtual Mindfulness Meditation Classes by True North Treks
We have been in the process of rolling out free, drop-in video conference based mindfulness classes starting the first week of April, and now due to social distancing, the timing couldn’t be better. If you want to start or strengthen your mindfulness practice, please consider attending some of these video-conference based classes, taught by some of TNT’s amazing mindfulness guides.

Step Beyond Challenge – Every Wednesday at 3:00pm EDT on Facebook Live
Join Colin aka “Wingman” Epic Experience’s camp director on a walk right out front your door. We want you to know that Mama Lou & Wingman are thinking about each and everyone of you during this trying time. We are constantly aware of the every changing impact of the Corona Virus and will make sure that all of our decisions made for our community are putting you first.

Epic Experience Ballroom Dancing! Every Monday at 6:00pm EDT
Ladies AND GENTLEMEN, join us for a quick lesson in Ballroom Dancing. Epic Experience is committed to keep us engaged and moving during this Corona Virus pandemic. Whether you are joining as a single or coupled up, everyone can learn a few basic ballroom dances. You may think you have ‘two left feet’ and cannot dance but I can promise that you’ll enjoy learning the basics. We’ll be starting with swing then adding waltz, foxtrot and polka depending on our quarantine weeks!

Virtual Yoga & Guided Meditation with Epic Experience
“Bugaboo” Piper Gould comes to you from Denver Colorado. She is an alumni camper of Epic Experience from summer 2019 and a volunteer.
She will teach a virtual yoga class ending in a guided meditation on various dates. This will be beginner level and we hope you and your family will join us as we practice social distancing while keeping healthy during these times! Join This Zoom Call – https://zoom.us/j/9598676696

Monday’s with Tari from yoga4cancer – Mondays at 2pm EDT
Please join Tari Prinster for a 50 minute yoga4cancer Class every Monday at 2pm (EDT). This oncology based yoga practice is designed to manage the side effects of cancer and its treatment. The needs of cancer patients and survivors remains a vital need in the midst of the Covid-19 outbreak. Our goal is to provide safe and effective support to cancer patients and survivors.

 


Financial Support

Family Reach’s #WESEEYOU Campaign – Let’s Stand Up for Cancer Patients
Helping families reach the other side of cancer has always been Family Reach’s priority, and we have a responsibility to understand this new reality and respond with targeted solutions. That’s why we created an Emergency COVID-19 Fund, allowing us to continue reaching families with immediate financial support, including those most affected by this crisis. You can help by donating to the fund and raising awareness so the cancer community knows we see them  — and that help is on the way. Thank you for standing with us!
