I was involved in the TAO Foundation project on providing energy work to women diagnosed with breast cancer as a student of energy work and a service provider for the TAO Foundation.

When first asked if I was interested I was extremely excited to be a part of such a personal experience. My wife was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2004 and went through surgery and they had gotten everything mainly because of the early detection Mammogram, so this was very personal to me and having the experience so close, You could not have ask me to be more helpful and excited to be a part of this study.

I was asked to interview several of the woman in this study from the start and the at the end study, The experience of just doing that was a real honor, the woman were very up front and very open about what they were going through and I was glad that they trusted me enough from the very beginning, not ever knowing me before, being let into their homes, such an honor, I found these woman to be just wonderful people and in a extremely diffi cult time in their lives.

When the study started with the actual energy sessions it was amazing to listen to their experiences with the surgeries and chemotherapy and the radiation was so emotional at times that it took everything I could do to not just walk up to them and just hug them!.

Then to be a part of the hands on, on this same person that had just let us know how rough it was and how tough the battle was going, just overwhelmed me at moments, then to listen and let their bodies tell and teach us what they needed was an experience that I will always cherish, the experience I had and gained from this will be with me for the rest of my life.

My life has been enhanced and rewarded from this experience ten fold, I cannot wait to be a part of another study or another experience with the TAO Foundation or any experience that Jan Cendese leads me to.
