Sandy is more than just a friend, a loved one, a life coach. For most of us, she is a Fairy Godmother who has shown us the most benevolent kindness and deepest wisdom we have ever known. She teaches us by example: How to love authentically and hold boundaries at the same time, how to give generously but also honor our true Selves, how to live with Purpose and find fulfillment in our daily experiences. For most of us, Sandy has taught us how to Really Live.
And now, it is time for us to show Sandy how much we love her, and are grateful for the gifts she has given us so freely.
Unfortunately, Sandy has recently learned she has uterine cancer. She begins chemotherapy this week.
Sandy's attitude remains positive, and she is eager to embrace both traditional and holistic approaches for her recovery. She is very pleased with her medical team and feels she is in good hands.
Sandy will need to take a sabbatical from work, and her husband Peter will need to reduce his working hours in order to be attentive to her care. Additionally, much of the holistic care and herbal prescriptions she pursues will have to come out of pocket. They are facing a financial crisis of heightened expenses without their combined incomes, at exactly the wrong time.
We all hate to imagine this gentle, loving woman enduring so many hardships at once. We would love to relieve Sandy and her family of this financial stress, so that they may calmly embrace a state of healing. Will you please help?
Sandy was very humbled and touched to know we might all want to come together as a community on her behalf. I think she doesn't fully understand how much we love her, how grateful we are for her, what an important difference she has made. It is a true opportunity for us to send her love and light and thanks all at once, all as a group, and let it uplift her and encourage her just when she needs it the most.

Currently, Sandy says their freezer is filled to the brim with excellent food, so they do not require meals. We'll let you know here if that situation changes.
If you email her, please don't ask for a reply. She may only be reading them sporadically. But all your words of love and encouragement are greatly appreciated. Please remember to refrain from offering her a vision of herself as ill or frail, we must seek to uplift and empower her at all times. Help her laugh and feel joyful!
This diagnosis has come as a shock to Sandy and all who know her. Nevertheless, it is aggressive and must be addressed immediately. She had very little time to make plans to address her business and responsibilities before beginning treatment. Your assistance is urgently needed.
Thank you so much for taking the time to consider Sandy's needs and offer help. Sending her your love and support, in whatever form you're able, is the best healing anyone could offer.
In love and light,
