At the end of my first year working in the outpatient cancer center as a Holistic Nurse Practitioner, I proposed a Reiki Level 1 Workshop for women with cancer. This way, they could learn Reiki for personal use and also share it with family and friends. Most of the women who signed up had been and some still were, patients whom I had worked with during their chemotherapy. The response was overwhelming. After the program, a dozen women continued to meet with me and discuss the possibility of starting a support group for women with cancer with emphasis on the Healing Arts. They asked me to be president, but I refused. I told them loud and clear, “Ladies you are the experts. You have walked the Journey, I have only accompanied you.” Thus WINGS was born. We are grateful to all of the beautiful people who have helped us get to this Healing Place.
