Members of Gilda's Club and CMCC acupuncturist.
Because well-being is so integral to our company mission, we fund wellness programs in the larger community as well. Two of the programs we currently support are:
Gilda's Club Westchester, NY:
EILEEN FISHER is delighted to sponsor Wellness Days at Gilda's Club Westchester. These twice yearly events provide cancer patients and their family member (s) opportunities to experience healing therapies such as yoga, Pilates, scrapbooking and flower arranging, all free of charge and in the warm, home-like environment of Gilda's Club.
The Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic in Oakland, CA:
Often low-income women with cancer have no access to the kind of support and relief offered by massage therapists, acupuncturists, social workers and homeopathy practitioners. In 1991 a group of health professionals and cancer patients founded the Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic. From a Saturday morning program, it has grown to include a network of some 120 volunteer alternative healthcare practitioners. The Clinic also sponsors courses in Chinese medicine and acupuncture to train others in the treatment of women with cancer.
