“When someone gets diagnosed with cancer, the whole family and everyone who loves them does too.” -Terri Clark In 2006, we founded the Mindfulness Program for cancer patients and their families at Thomas Chapman Cancer Wellness Piedmont Healthcare. We facilitate several classes and workshops at CCW every week. In our recent TEDX talk, we discussed some of our work. I asked the audience how many people had been impacted by cancer. Almost every hand went up. Wow! In 2008, we lost my father to cancer. He was only 62. We were heartbroken. We deeply understand the complex role of being a caregiver and watching someone you love go through difficult treatments. We also have seen many triumphs for the patients and families we serve. In 2012 we began traveling the country to speak to healthcare professionals about the importance of implementing Mindfulness into the workplace. Research shows that healthcare professionals who have a Mindfulness practice receive much higher client satisfaction ratings. We heard numerous stories from these professionals around the victories and obstacles of practicing Mindfulness. We are passionate about helping healthcare systems cultivate a mindful environment for patients, their families, and the professionals who serve them. Invite us to bring Mindfulness to your organization! #mindfulness #mindful #leadership#healthcare #cancer #cancercare #cancerprevention #mindbody#integrative #health #healthy #survivorship #coach #angelabuttimer#dennisbuttimer #speaker #TEDxspeaker #TEDx #keynotespeaker#corporatetraining #findthecure #findthecause #mindfulhealthcare
