Fighting Breast Cancer with Wellness

The Wellnest recently began partnering with Unite for Her, a nonprofit which educates women with breast cancer about the greatly beneficial impact that therapies like nutrition, acupuncture, massage, yoga and counseling can have in helping them fight their disease and manage their symptoms and side effects. Not only that, Unite for Her gives each woman they work with between $2,000 and $3,000 to pursue the therapies of their choice for a year.
