Sailing Heals

10/5/12 –With my last post I wrote about an event sponsored by the John Theurer Cancer at Hackensack University Medical center called “Celebrate Life and Liberty”. As each survivor was registered for the event their name was placed in drawing where the winner would get to go sailing with Dr. Goy. Anyone who has read this blog knows that I think Dr. Goy is a great guy and should not be surprised that I was very excited to hear that I was one of the winners. As I learned more about this sailing event I was very impressed what it is all about. There is a non-profit organization called Sailing Heals. Sailing Heals’ essential mission is to take individuals and their families and caretakers out on the water for a beautiful day of sailing and respite. Sailing Heals matches owners of beautiful boats (sailing or motorized) with patients and their caretakers and takes them out for half-day sails, sometimes followed by a lunch or water-side picnic.
Our outing set sail out of the South Street Seaport in New York City off of the a boat named the Pioneer. There were about 30 survivors along with their friends and families. I was there with my wife Sue. We all had a great time. We shared our stories while we took in the beautify sites of NYC. In the end we all made new friends and there is no doubt that Sailing Heals’ mission was accomplished… we all had a wonderful day where we all forgot about life’s problems.
I want to thank the John Theurer Cancer Center at Hackensack University Medical Center, Dr. Goy and most importantly, Sailing Heals for a great day.

I am planning to post my next update in February after I get my scan results.
