“I had the opportunity, at the last minute, to attend a fundraiser ride for breast cancer this past Sunday organized by Diane Chafee and Janna Combs. Hope Held by a Horse is a non-profit organization, their mission is to provide a safe, positive environment, in the company of horses, to support women with breast cancer to learn, grow, and heal. This ride was in support of those with or recovering from breast cancer. What better way to support this cause then a fun ride in early April, riding as many miles as you wanted with up to 40 miles possible…”
“Creative photoshoots during Covid has energized me. One creative photoshoot of note is at my friend, Suzanne Hagmaier’s ranch. Suzanne is a fellow Cancer Survivor and now equine trainer with breast cancer patients and survivors in mind. The non profit organization she is executive director of is called Hope Held by a Horse, a non profit, which provides a safe, positive environment, in the company of horses, to support women with breast cancer to learn, grow, and heal. Suzanne and I both know the importance of feeling powerful while dealing with breast cancer and these horses really make a difference…”
On that day, I was able to be with horses for the first time in my life. In one short day, the horses and the volunteers enabled me to move on from hurt and my experiences related to cancer. I will be able to embrace what cancer has given me and to dream again. In one short moment, I was I able to connect with animals and fall in love with their kindness.
