Cancer… not my life plan!

Major illness is life-altering. Having cancer may seem like a wrongness, a mistake in your life plan. Navigating a cancer diagnosis can be terrifying: What will happen to my family? My job? My hair? My body? Will I die?

We get it. Receiving a Stage IV cancer diagnosis certainly wasn’t the reality that Loving Meditations founders, David Dachinger and Tamara Green, were envisioning for themselves!

But what if cancer is also a gift? (Hint: It is.)

The Loving Meditations invitation for you: Become an active participant in your cancer journey, from diagnosis to survivorship. And thrive.

It’s time to hit the reset switch. We can help.
Here’s your action plan.

Your first step is to download the Loving Meditations App now. Get results from your first meditation experience. Built on the foundation of mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR) practices, our App delivers whatever you need in any moment—watch during chemotherapy and scans, and in waiting rooms. Easily sort and choose the perfect choice for lessening stress, alleviating insomnia, lessening pain, diminishing anxiety, and more

Imagine this scene: You’re sitting in the infusion center hooked up to a cocktail of I.V. medications. You are bored and restless, anticipating discomfort and you cannot relax. You sigh… then remember your Loving Meditations app. Just what you need! You pop in your earbuds and see the meditation “Calm4Chemo.” Within minutes, you are resting comfortably and feeling better. This isn’t so bad after all.

I work for an oncology home care agency and the app creators have been so helpful in recommending the best meditations for our patients, for difficulties that come with a cancer diagnosis and treatment. When you don’t know how to help or what to say to a friend or family member who has been diagnosed, this would be a wonderful gift to give them!

Sometimes you just need straight talk, and loved ones may avoid being real with you. Where can you turn for powerful support? As much as our friends, family, and caregivers may love and support us, they just can’t understand where we are, and there are some things we just can’t talk about. That’s why we offer different Loving Support groups for cancer patients. We make it easy by meeting online so you can join from anywhere. We make it powerful by creating perfectly sized groups where you learn from others’ experiences and get the individualized attention you need. And, we make it affordable because we want you to have access to this incredibly powerful resource.

I must tell you that your Living with Cancer Support Group has been a wonderful factor in my ability to cope with my diagnosis, treatment, and ‘new normal.’ You and my fellow group members have been a tremendous comfort and support. Thanks!
