Healing Hands for Cancer Pain

Thanks to donors like you, we have been providing massage services to cancer patients for 10 months now!  With continued giving, we can provide many more cancer patients with soothing massage therapy through the end of the year. Thank you!

Healing Hands link now active

March 27, 2018

To those of you who tried to donate last week, the link appeared to have been inactive 1-2 weeks ago.  Problem fixed!  Thank you for your patience, and please feel free to re-visit our website and donate to our cancer patients.


Since our last campaign, our beloved Julie passed away battling leukemia.  In honor of her and all of our patients who are battling this serious illness, I thank you and honor you, for your wonderful support. 


Thanks again for helping us deliver the best care to our UCSF cancer patients!


in gratitude,

Healing Hands has been serving cancer patients for 10 months!

March 21, 2018

Thanks to you, cancer patients in the hematology-oncology service have been getting natural relief from anxiety, pain, and stress for 10 months now!  Carolyn, our massage therapist, has been collecting surveys and responses to asses effectiveness of this intervention.


Here are some of patient's comments: 


"My sleep was a lot better.  I fell right alseep that night when I closed my eyes."

"She (Carolyn, our therapist) has magical hands, her soft touch on my pain made it feel way better."

" Carolyn is a true healer.  My headache went away and I had a restful sleep.  She is a keeper and thank you for providing this service."

"Excellent!  Carolyn is not only gentle and kind but a healer"


Since our services are based on philanthropy, I ask that you consider donating to our cause.  If left unfunded, we will no longer be able to provide this service as of April. Please consider helping us to keep this service going for another year!


Thank you for allowing us to provide excellent care for our patients!


my best,
