GIVING BACK TO HEALTHCARE WORKERS
While our organization usually offers cancer patient support via therapeutic sailing excursions, Covid-19 has us pivoting to give back to healthcare heroes who serve the cancer community!
Please help us raise $10,000 to provide our community’s Healthcare Heroes with free private sailing excursions on beautiful Lake Champlain in Burlington, VT.
Healing Winds is so thankful for ALL Healthcare Heroes, who have risked everything to keep their communities safe and healthy. Instead of letting the pandemic stop us, we want to take care of the people who are taking care of us.
If you are a Healthcare Hero who works in any department serving cancer patients in any capacity, we want to take YOU sailing! If you know a Healthcare Hero who would benefit from leaving stress on the shore, PLEASE NOMINATE THEM TODAY!

Cancer is an unbelievable, heartbreaking, and trying diagnosis. Experiences and prognoses differ, but overall, it can be perceived as a big mess, wreaking havoc through a “normal” life.
Could there be a “bless” in a mess?
It’s an interesting question and one that has often been written about. I think it’s worth exploring anew as a way to give some meaning, hope, peace, or healing in some way. It can also apply to what the general worldwide population is going through regarding COVID-19.
At Healing Winds Vermont, we try to make a positive difference by offering a therapeutic sailing escape and regularly sharing information that might make things a tad bit lighter for you and your family.
Please nominate someone for one of our relaxing and spirit-lifting sails today.
For this week’s blog post, I specifically reached out to some local cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers.
Whether you are experiencing cancer or COVID, I invite you to entertain what might be a “bless” right now.
Maybe today your answer is, “nothing.”
Maybe tomorrow offers a different one.
Blessings to all.
