YOU DID IT!
You answered the call. A record number of donors raised a record total for 170 local nonprofits in the 2021 Monterey County Gives! campaign.
Thank you for stepping up.
-The Monterey County Gives! team.
Our mission is to promote health, healing and wholeness by - providing Healing Touch to cancer patients and their caregivers, - by training and supporting the expanding group of providers, and - by extending Healing Touch to new healthcare settings.
Healing Partners of the Central Coast provides alternative therapies to soothe cancer patients enduring chemotherapy and radiation treatments. The Healing Touch program, the organization’s signature program and Big Idea, is a non-invasive form of energy work promoting deep relaxation and offering symptom relief, improved sleep, pain reduction and other benefits. This nonprofit partners with local oncologists to provide Healing Touch to cancer patients at no cost, with 4,600 gentle sessions performed over the last five years.
The Healing Touch experience was, without a doubt, an integral part of my survival. My Healing Touch partner offered me a safe and quiet space every week to receive hands-on energy work so my body could begin to heal during the rigors of breast cancer treatment. The care was professional and compassionate. I will be forever grateful for those healing hands!
