Hello again to all our dear Life Force members, friends and supporters.
As we forge ahead into 2022, we must give a huge vote of thanks to our wonderful donors who have kept us going for another year despite the many struggles, financial and otherwise, experienced by all. Without your continuing support we would not be able to deliver our valuable supportive care services here in Sydney, via Zoom, and across regional New South Wales. Thank you for caring!
Also, thanks to all of you who have sponsored the Life Force team in the upcoming Beach2Beach FunRun – promise we are in training!
It’s nearly the end of the year, time to send warmest wishes for the festive season to everyone and best wishes for health and happiness in the year ahead.
It’s also time to say thank you to all our wonderful supporters and friends who have kept Life Force going strongly for over 25 years now. It is your generous donations and contributions that have made it possible to continue our vitally important support programs and services.
With your support we have been able to bring comfort hope and healing to the many people living with cancer who have come to us for help when their world has been turned upside down.
It is also time to say thank you to our wonderful patrons, Gabi Hollows and Prof. Michael Friedlander and our Life Force Board members, who share and support our vision and mission, and to our marvellous willing and enthusiastic volunteers. Our thanks also to our dedicated, caring and compassionate team of counsellors and therapists who haven’t missed a beat right through 2021.
As the year draws to a close, we reflect on what we have achieved in 2021, and look ahead at our plans for 2022.
Dear friends and supporters
Greetings from all of us at Life Force. As Spring brings renewal to the land, we are experiencing a time of change and renewal in our own lives as we navigate this time of difficulty and uncertainty with Covid as well as the cancer journey.
Let us together explore ways of moving forward so that we live according to our true values and act in a spirit of loving kindness towards ourselves and others. What’s more, let us extend that to include all living things in our world as we are all interconnected at a deep level. Let us strive to care for the health and wellbeing of each other and our beautiful planet.
We hope you enjoy reading the stories in this newsletter, and take away some inspiration from them.
With love from all the Life Force Team.
Reading Ann’s story distills the importance of having somewhere to turn to when the world turns dark.
Life Force Foundation has become a symbol of life and hope for people living with cancer.
We have received wonderful responses from the cancer community we serve, expressing their gratitude for the generosity of strangers. Many have spoken of how much it means to them, that they do not feel so alone, and that the support groups and programs Life Force offers have been so helpful in deepening their healing.
It is this ‘generosity of strangers’, that lifts them up, helps them to regain their confidence and re-engage with life because it tells them that people out there, care about their wellbeing.
Our Life Force programs help people living with cancer build resilience and enhance their wellbeing. These programs can only happen with generous donations from our benefactors. Thanks to all our regular donors for their wonderful contributions.
Your ongoing support will help us to help them.
Greetings to all our Life Force friends, patients, survivors, carers and all those working with and supporting people living with cancer in the community. We are moving into 2021 with hope, courage and enthusiasm, and a strong resolve to continue advancing our valuable supportive care programs here in Sydney and across regional NSW. We’ll keep you posted through the year on all events and programs.
Life Force Foundation supports people dealing with the whole experience of cancer, encouraging the expression of all feelings in a safe and caring environment.
