Hands 4 Hope Project, Inc., is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that was started in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia because of the need. As an oncology massage therapist, I want to be able to give massages to every person living with a cancer diagnosis because I know how beneficial this compassionate touch can be on the journey back to complete health. Unfortunately, because the treatment for cancer is most often extremely expensive, many individuals walking this path cannot afford to get regular massages.
That's the gap we at Hands 4 Hope Project hope to fill. We are a very new nonprofit so funding is not yet where it needs to be to get started but our intentions are to get the massages happening by end of 2016 or early 2017, at the latest!
If you or someone you know has been touched by this disease and you would like to help, you can either mail checks to Hands 4 Hope Project, Inc., 508 S. Independence Blvd., Suite 101, Virginia Beach, VA 23452 or you can come by in person and see our space, as well!! Also, please visit our website, hands4hopeproject.org, for more information, as well as local resources and tips for your health!
We look forward to being of service to every person in this area living with a cancer diagnosis who would love to have a massage!!
