I have just recorded my Hunter's Bay Radio interview with Allie Chisholm-Smith.
Allie is the founder of Ahimsa Yoga Studio and ENLIVEN (along with Joanne McLean).
Allie: ENLIVEN is an organization in Muskoka designed to help cancer patients,
their caregivers/families and healthcare providers, with issues along the cancer journey.
Yvonne: What I love the most is that you encourage people to tell their story,
as they are struggling—just being real with it—and of course, that is a big part of my message. We have to acknowledge and allow grief and be able to have these real conversations.
You support others with whatever they need; nutrition, yoga, everything… all encompassing.
Allie: Yes, support through chemo, support if you opt out of chemo… whatever you need!
Yvonne: For those with cancer, their families, caregivers, healthcare providers…everyone.
You and Joanne started this 2 and 1/2 years ago,
and it’s growing and changing organically. Cancer is something that affects everyone!
We can’t even say “most people.” We ALL know someone who has been diagnosed or
we have been diagnosed ourselves. This kind of support is extremely important.
I love what you are doing and will support you in any way I can.
Namaste, and thank you.

Hello Joan! Thank you for sharing this. And how wonderful that you are a 15 year survivor!! ENLIVEN is a connecting place for everyone and for all of those conversations. If we don't talk about it, we get stuck! All the very best to you! :)
