Integrative wellness therapies for people in our community facing cancer.
Approximately 1,400 people are diagnosed with cancer each year on Cape Cod. Many of them will seek integrative therapies to manage pain and nausea, reduce anxiety and increase well being during their illness. But most of these therapies – acupuncture, massage, energy work, yoga, nutritional counseling and more — are not covered by insurance. As such, even those able to try integrative therapies do not have the opportunity to continue.
Inspired to make a difference in her community after losing her mother to ovarian cancer, local musician Sarah Swain created the Cape Cod Women’s Music Festival in 2012.
In 2015, Sarah founded Cape Wellness Collaborative, a nonprofit dedicated to providing free-of-charge integrative therapies and nutritious meals to people facing cancer on Cape Cod and the Islands.
