Dear Rick, Donna, Mike & Mel,

    It was so wonderful to have your group Joia at our "together" support group. Thank you, thank you. As you heard many of the members are at different stages of survivorship. The sharing and the unity of this group is very important to all involved.
    The Spriegel research on support groups showed that unity and belonging to a support group added to the quality and the length of survivorship for people diagnosed with cancer.
    Your Unity Through Percussion workshop on Tuesday was a big boost to this unity. Your music, group building game, community sharing and most of all laughter were all healing and added to the quality of life for all involved. Thank you again for being so generous with your talents, time and healing energies.
    With positive thoughts,

Barnes Hospital at Washington University Medical Center
