Something To Look Forward To works tirelessly to promote wellbeing, relieve stress and assist those people recovering from the impact of cancer or its treatment.
And Acupuncture That Works is proud to have established close links with such a brilliant organisation.
After its founder, Fiona, was personally affected by breast cancer in 2007, Something To Look Forward To dedicated itself to providing cancer sufferers and their families with a platform via which they can access a variety of free ‘gifts’ donated by companies and individuals. Our founder, Emma, also had breast cancer so she, and ATW, share many values with Something To Look Forward To, which has helped us create a strong relationship.
As we all know, the global coronavirus pandemic and the spread of Covid-19 has affected cancer patients. Not only has it been a frightening time for those with compromised immune systems, but patients have also seen important appointments postponed.
Loved ones have been separated for a long period, and futures have become uncertain.
Like many operations, including ours, Something To Look Forward To was forced to suspend its service during lockdown. However, its website application process is now open again.
Donating Acupuncture Sessions
One of our core values at Acupuncture That Works is to help and support people, something the whole team believes in. As a result, we are pleased to announce our intention to resume our collaboration with Something To Look Forward To as soon as it is safe to do so. We will again be donating acupuncture sessions to offer holistic therapies to cancer sufferers.
When working in St. Luke’s Hospice in 2011, Emma, our founder, helped patients who had been diagnosed with cancer. During this time, she developed ‘The Guy Protocol’ to use during acupuncture sessions after finding it is effective when applied to patients using Tamoxifen – a post-operative drug for breast cancer patients. In particular, it has shown to reduce the side effects of hot flushes.
