Issue 14: The Movement Issue – Spring 2022
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:
Spring has arrived and with it comes warmer weather, more time in the sun and maybe even some traveling. In our spring issue, we highlight the ones dedicating their skills and wisdom to promoting healthy living and growth for cancer warriors and thrivers everywhere, as well as tips for travel and wellness on the go.
Some of the inspirational organizations in this issue include Maple Tree Cancer Alliance, a nonprofit committed to making exercise the standard for patient care in a free and accessible way (p. 36), and Fight Through Flights, an organization empowering and supporting Black women with breast cancer by arranging free wellness retreats, staycations and health and nutrition resources (p. 56).
As spring opens the possibility to travel more, Liz Tuckwell (p. 27) reminds us that wellness lies within no matter where we are, and we must take time to energize and recharge—something that’s essential every day. You can also reconnect with nature and book a trip to go forest bathing, as Sheryl Nance-Nash takes you on a journey exploring the best spots to immerse yourself in the healing power of trees (p. 28).
We are also excited to feature an article all about you—our readers!—on the topic of cancer portrayal in the media (p. 51). It’s imperative to have these conversations with the people who are living with cancer day to day, and we are so grateful that we can help contribute to the discourse within the cancer community.
Spring is the season of renewed growth and healing. I hope that our spring issue brings you all peace, love and the chance to flourish.
