Social Mission Partner 2018: Unite for HER
Out of many submissions and much deliberation, we’re excited to announce that we chose Unite for HER to be our Fig West Chester 2018 Social Mission Partner! Unite for HER is committed to helping women diagnosed with breast cancer navigate their way through treatment by providing complementary therapies designed to promote physical and emotional wellness.
At Fig, we believe in the power of a community that works together to identify needs and find solutions—one that creates connections and is passionate about helping its neighbors. Because of this, the Social Mission Partner Program began. Each year Fig West Chester partners with a nonprofit organization working to transform the community. The nonprofit receives a page in each quarterly Fig West Chester issue in 2018, plus digital promotion on FigWestChester.com and Fig West Chester social media.
When Unite for HER founder Sue Weldon was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004, she began searching for information on therapies that would complement the medical treatments she was receiving. What she discovered was a lack of easily accessible resources for breast cancer patients to enhance their wellness and care for their emotional, spiritual, and physical needs.
Since its establishment as a nonprofit organization in 2009, Unite for HER’s mission has been to bridge that gap for breast cancer patients by funding and delivering those complementary therapies and wellness initiatives that will positively impact their health — like acupuncture, oncology massage, nutrition counseling, yoga, meditation, sexual counseling, reiki, and psychological counseling.
Fig West Chester couldn’t be more proud to partner with this incredible nonprofit. Find out even more on UniteforHer.org and explore the incredible impact this organization is making in the West Chester community.
