Cancer doesn't realize that it just rallied a strong community around one tough gal and we're ready for a fight! The support that we have seen coming from staff, teachers, and students in the Santosha Yoga studio is inspiring and heartwarming.
Here's how you can be part of the support and help Brittany in her journey with cancer:
** Special Karma Class for Brittany M. ~ Tuesday, Jan. 13th @ 5:30 pm Beginning Vinyasa. All proceeds from this class will go to Brittany's cancer treatment and are greatly appreciated! This will be taught by Brittany herself.
** Handmade necklaces and bracelets have been donated by Cindy, a yogi/TT/jewelry maker, so that all the "sales" will go directly to supporting Brittany. Come into the studio to see them. A great gift for yourself or upcoming birthdays, Valentine's Day, Mother's Day; beautiful gift, beautiful cause. Check or cash, only.
** One of Brittany's family members set up a site to support her throughout her journey with cancer and the year of chemotherapy. Every dollar helps. http://www.gofundme.com/LetsHelpBritt
** And, lastly, but not least, we will be establishing a Care Calendar where we will post what Brittany's needs are for help, rides, grocery runs, etc. On her chemo days, having someone else make a quick run to the store and drop off fresh produce for her juicing could make all the difference. Stay tuned to start signing up!
In the meantime, her blog is updated regularly and she's open with her words and experiences. She is setting an example for all of us to, "Go out and live your life."
