Unite for HER: Unite for HER is a non-profit founded in 2009 by cancer survivor Sue Weldon who set out to find therapies that would complement her medical treatments. Unite for HER was founded in Phili and in 2021 expanded nationally. Sue found a lack of easily accessible resources on topics like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga, counseling, and other ways for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs. After battling her personal cancer journey, Sue founded Unite for HER to bridge this gap for all fighting breast and ovarian cancer.
People can either buy gift baskets (small, medium, large) and send them along or they can contribute to funding a woman. Funding a Woman provides patients a year of services via a wellness passport (see attached). Women can select the services that they want and spend a year learning about a variety of topics and areas that will help heal them – massage, yoga, counseling, nutrition sessions, etc. It also empowers patients with things they can do to aid in recovery and treatment between chemo and radiation treatments.
Unite for HER has grown 20% every year. Sue is an inspiring story.
