Asheville resident PJ Tosca was working as a licensed massage therapist when she found out she had breast cancer. Following a mastectomy, chemotherapy and radiation, she used her experience to transition into certified oncology massage.
Tosca shares that though chemotherapy had been very difficult, her medical staff encouraged her to continue working and exercising. While working, Tosca decided to shift her focus. Along with a close friend who is a yoga instructor, she formed a non-profit organization, Touched by Cancer. Touched by Cancer provides massage and yoga to cancer patients at no cost to them.
"A diagnosis of cancer is stressful emotionally, physically, and financially. I personally know the benefits of these therapies for cancer patients. If we can take the stress of the financial burden, more patients can benefit from the benefits of therapies."
