It Feels so Good!
Special People Need A Special Touch
Cancer — and its cause, cures, and treatments—is as individual and varied as the people it affects. No aspect of life is untouched. In addition to physical symptoms, emotional and body image issues may arise as well. For many cancer patients, touch is associated with pain and discomfort. Gentle touch is nurturing, calming and soothing, and provides a safe space.
