I went to The Victory Center today at lunch for my intake appointment. After much paperwork, I sat down the Program Director, Penny McCloskey, and we went over all of the programs and benefits that they offer. I was simply amazed at everything that they provide for cancer patients and honestly really moved.
Everyone that I met today is a cancer survivor themselves, so they really get what I am going through. I could tell that they were genuinely excited about the programs and services they offer and truly cared that they could help me through this tough time. I was then shown around the facility and introduced to everyone there, from the executive director on down.
Before leaving, they wanted to get me scheduled for my first few services. I was already scheduled for a massage this coming Saturday by the lady that booked my intake appointment on the phone, so I decided to try a couple of their other offerings. I signed up for “Healing Touch,” which is the western world’s version of Reiki, an energy-based approach to healing. I’m not totally sure I believe that it will work, but I have to give it a try. I also signed up for flexology, which is healing through the pressure points in the feet. Who knows, that might work, too 🙂
So, if you live in northwest Ohio or Southeast Michigan, and are unlucky enough to have cancer, I recommend that you give The Victory Center a call and set up your intake appointment. I think that you will find that you will be glad that you did.
