Through a good friend of mine I got familiar with yoga bear. Yoga bear is a non-profit organization which provides free yoga classes for cancer survivors. From my close observation of cancer patients (my families and friends), I believe nothing is more helpful than assist the survivors shift beyond a restricted mindset of always being sick. This can have a long term negative effect. So any activity that helps the survivors to change their negative outlook can be very beneficial. Yoga, for sure, is one of those activities. Not only it will aid to relax, it will help survivors to know their body better. So they can send the message to their body in order to heal. I support this organization for what they are doing for the love of life and people.
