Melanie is poetry in motion when she is expressing beauty, strength and grace inside the circle of a Lyra Hoop. She was one of my first hoop students 8 years ago and I have followed her journey from the hoop to her joy and talent as a Lyra performer infusing all she does with magic!
Help her on her healing journey with a few love dollars from the Hoop Community.
Meet Melanie, who's world in November, was rocked by the news of an invasive breast cancer that spread to her lymph nodes. Since then she has gone through multiple surgeries, medical testing and doctor appointments. Due to her line of work as a massage therapist and esthetician she has not been able to work and has been advised by her Lymphadema specialist to wait another month before starting back. The struggle here is Melanie is self employed and does not get benefits or disability pay during this time off making the financial burden for living expenses, medical bills and therapies a challenge.
Melanie believes strongly in alternative ways of healing. She is being advised by the Western Medical Dr's to do radiation and take a pill form of Chemo for 5 years. Melanie believes in the importance of trying natural approaches, such as detoxing, dietary changes and emotional work to find the root cause of the cancer before using the more invasive methods. Her belief is that the western therapies treat the symptoms of disease and not the cause.
The good news; she is a lively, energetic, passionate being with an incredible spiritual talent in massage, esthetics, yoga and energy work and is not going to allow this disease to take her down.
Support toward her healing transformation is deeply appreciated.
