Sometimes the most interesting things happen when you least expect them. I have been fortunate to have been working for the past several years with Lucy's Love Bus, an organization which provides funding for pediatric cancer patients to integrate therapies such as acupuncture, massage, therapeutic riding and art therapy into their treatment. Through their program I was connected with a young girl named Camille and her mom Colleen. In a flurry of texts and emails on Monday, Beecher Grogan (Lucy's mom and founder of Lucy's Love Bus) managed to pull us all together to shoot a story for CNN's Accent Health featuring the therapeutic riding program at Friends for Tomorrow and acupuncture at Synergy Acupuncture & Wellness.
Linda and Ed, the team who came to shoot the piece, were wonderful and managed to work really well with our small space, putting those of us who were a bit camera shy immediately at ease. They also shot some of a treatment for Camille, but I'm afraid Ed was a bit disappointed at not having time to see some fire cupping. All in all, it was a great time for a great cause. To learn more about the many programs Lucy's Love bus has for cancer patients as well as a bunch of ways people of all ages can get involved check out their website Lucy's Love Bus.
We will be posting a link to the video when it goes up so stay tuned!
