The Oncology patients support fund
Following the fundraising event “Rasons nos cocos” organized on May 8, 2017, the Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation set up a fund specifically dedicated to cancer patients.
The Brome-Missisquoi-Perkins Hospital Foundation is proud to collaborate with Yoga et Mouvement (Laura Hernandez) and the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS to offer free Yoga classes specificly adapted for patients with cancer or in remission. Thanks to the Oncology patients support fund, this project helps to support people going through this difficult period.
Admission conditions to the program
This activity is reserved for all residents of the Brome-Missisquoi region diagnosed with cancer and receiving treatment in one of the CIUSSS de l’Estrie-CHUS facilities. Patients must be currently receiving treatment (chemotherapy/radiotherapy) or must have completed it within the last three months.
The program offers a free session of yoga. One session consists of 4 classes of 90 minutes each. It should be noted that no yoga experience is required and that the classes will be given in Knowlton.
A qualified professor
The project was developed with Laura Hernandez, a certified “Yoga4cancer” teacher and holistic wellness consultant. To provide people with an optimal experience, Laura Hernandez will use a combination of several tools during her yoga sessions: gentle yoga postures and movements, breathing exercises, meditation, relaxation, writing exercises, as well as sounds and music.
