Team Inspiration came into my life through Roseann the second day I was in the hospital beginning a two year treatment for Luekemia.  Having Roseann and this team in my life has completing inspired my recovery process and my rebuilding and getting me through two of the most brutal years that hopefully I’ll ever have to go through in my life. Triathlon training has rebuilt my body both mentally and physically and inspired me in so many ways every day.  I’m so grateful to have this opportunity to participate with them in Iron Girl.

Healing Body, Mind and Spirit!
Inspiration House Yoga

Inspiration House Yoga

The idea of the Inspiration House came from my experience and belief that we have the ability to play a very important part in our own healing process. I have been blessed to be a part of the journey with a young mother, Jessica Hensley, who had leukemia. While she was in the hospital for treatment, we shared discussions and experiences about this power to heal, including, yoga, Reiki, meditation and relaxation techniques.

 

Warrior Kids

Warrior Kids in action!

The goal of Warrior Kids is simple: allow kids to do what they do best: laugh, play, grow and find joy and wonder in life! For kids with cancer or who have parents with cancer it can be challenging to just be a kid.  Team Inspiration provides Warrior Kids with resources and opportunities so that kids facing cancer in their life can find the joy and just be a kid!
