My Story

I've created this website to keep friends and family updated during this breast cancer journey. I greatly appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Many people have asked how to help support me during this journey.

Please join me on facebook:

1. Download Transform Your Life: a year of awareness practice by Cheri Huber. Set the alarm for 9am pacific time. We will then be reading the same Buddhist quote at the same time every day. A lovely way to connect with each other.

2. Dance! 

3. Donate to a charity.

***Bay Area Perinatal AIDS Center:
Please consider donating to this organization of which I am Medical Director.

*** San Francisco General Hospital Healing Through Movement Fund:
This newly-created project will bring movement and dance to both patients and medical providers. The goals of the program include to help patients learn about their bodies and use movement and dance to both promote wellness as well as cope with illness and dis-ease. This project will also include developing and disseminating a movement/dance curriculum for medical providers in order to cultivate the lost art of healing touch and physical listening, enhance surgical skills, and build community.

Blessings to all of you,
