Silent Angels is a program administered by the G-Alex Foundation that provides free specialized massage to low-income women who have undergone surgery for breast cancer. It was started when our Director, Sally Spurgeon, was volunteering at The Caring Place where she met several women who had undergone breast surgery several years earlier but who were still unable to raise their arms above their heads due to 'cording' of the tendons or who had limited range of motion due to lymphatic congestion. Sally mentioned this to one of her clients who was receiving breast massage and the client immediately offered to pay for a session for one of these women. The idea for Silent Angels was born. Once the word got out, Sandy Hanlon-Cressler, a client who is also a breast cancer survivor, donated all the proceeds from her handmade jewelry to Silent Angels, which previously had been going to the Sloan-Kettering Cancer Foundation. A fundraiser at Eccochi and more donations from generous clients have funded the program so far.
