SPECIAL PROGRAMS

The DC Healing Center presents:

The Diane B. Sheahan Memorial Fund – a Legacy Project of the Greater Washington Coalition for Cancer Survivors.

Diane Beaudin Sheahan was a community activist who died of ovarian cancer in 1994. During her six-year treatment journey, she became a leader in patient advocacy and the movement for cancer survivors. In her memory, this new project will continue some of the patient and caregiver support functions of the now-closed Greater Washington Coalition for Cancer Survivors.

Cancer patients and their caregivers are eligible to receive:

-       Mind-body treatments to promote relaxation and healing, including meditation, Reiki, craniosacral therapy and guided imagery. (Two sessions per person at no cost, with follow-up sessions at a discounted rate.)*

-       Individual or group classes in learning to use mind-body healing modalities for oneself and others. (Introductory class at no cost, with advanced training at a discounted rate).*

-       Ongoing support and connection to resources at no cost.

*All healing sessions are offered virtually during the covid-19 pandemic*
