dōTERRA Wellness Advocate Volunteers to Provide Support to Cancer Patients
March 20, 2016
Leigh Cavender dedicates her time to the Spinal Cord Tumor Association to offer support to individuals fighting cancerous tumors.
Wellness Advocate Leigh Cavender knows first-hand how scary it is to be diagnosed with a spinal cord tumor. Despite the frightening nature of this rare cancer diagnosis, Leigh underwent the necessary treatments and is now a survivor. Once she was cancer-free, Leigh felt grateful for a clean bill of health, which inspired her to support others who are trying to navigate their way through the same diagnosis.
This inspiration to help others led Leigh to join the Spinal Cord Tumor Association, a nonprofit group dedicated to providing support for spinal cord tumor survivors, and assisting anyone currently dealing with a diagnosis. As a member of the association, Leigh helps with online discussions and support groups, providing others with resources as well as emotional support. Since Leigh underwent cancer treatments for her own spinal cord tumor, she can help others know what to expect, and provide comforting support to those who are worried about the future.
