Pink firemen
Heartwood Participates in Evanstons Pink Heals Tour.
The Pink Heals Tour is an inspirational organization made up of Firemen from all around our country supporting people battling cancer with a focus on women and what they mean to the firefighters in their daily lives. They drive pink fire trucks and pink police cars across America bringing the “Cares Enough to Wear Pink” and Pink Heals Movement to our city’s. They simply provide a program for our community leaders to adopt, helping us fund raise for people rather than causes. They focus their love on the women of this community and wage war on anything that may harm them starting with cancer! These firemen have extremely big hearts and commitment to bring awareness to the entire country, they give up their sick and vacation days be a part of this tour.
It was very exciting for Heartwood to be represented at this event; Massage Therapist Rebecca Sturgeon, LMTCMLDT gave free chair massages throughout the event, and brought awareness of the importance of how massage helps support overall wellness and mitigates side effects for those with cancer.  Lori Aitken, MA, LCPC  shared about Heartwood and her “Overcoming Anxiety Group” which teaches clients skills to cope with the anxiety and stress that cancer diagnosis and treatment often brings. Lauren Wismer CHC also shared about the wide array of holistic health-care services and alternative cancer treatments available through the practitioners at Heartwood, as well as her own practice as a Health Coach which provides support for cancer patients and their family along with tips for cancer prevention and dietary/lifestyle changes to alter their outcome.
