Unite for HER provides complementary wellness services to aid men and women affected by breast cancer. Thier mission is to bridge the gap between the medical and wellness communities by funding and delivering complementary therapies that support the physical and emotional needs of those with breast cancer during treatment and beyond. They educate women and the community about the role of healthy lifestyle choices in the prevention of disease and the promotion of wellness.
Each year, approximately 1,000 patients are eligible to receive complementary therapy treatments courtesy of Unite for HER. Through nutrition consultations, therapy and counseling sessions, Unite for HER helps restore the part of recovery that doctors do not cure during treatments. After getting diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, founder and president Sue Weldon began exploring wellness therapies that would complement the treatment she was receiving. During her research, Sue discovered a need for more patients to gain access to resources for emotional, spiritual, and physical support.
“It is a celebration of fabulous local chefs, wineries, breweries and spirits providers,” said founder Sue Weldon. “Each and every year by creating delicious tastings for our guests, the chefs and wineries go above and beyond to make Harvest a special event. It is because of their generosity and support that we can deliver such a fun and inspiring evening. The funds raised through Harvest help us meet the growing needs of women with breast cancer.”
With the help of donations, sponsorships and partnerships, Unite for HER has high hopes of increasing their resources to help breast cancer patients. With 14 local hospital partnerships within the Greater Philadelphia area and New Jersey, Unite for HER is able to treat 1,000 women per year with $2,000 worth of services. This event was made possible thanks to their partners Ditech Home Loans, ACURE, AJS Pancott Gymnastics, Mancino Manufacturing Co., and MD Anderson Cooper Cancer.
