What does Project BeamON mean to Rose? “Project BeamON’s fundamental mission is to offer comfort, warmth, and peace to people with cancer. It also is incredible support as the ideal gift for loved ones to send who have been diagnosed with cancer. After losing my grandmother to cancer, I always felt helpless when hearing that people were diagnosed at a young age. Project BeamON fills that helplessness with the ideal gift to offer comfort, warmth, and peace, which the Reiki-blanket offers all packaged up in a beautiful organic cotton blanket.

What does Project BeamON mean to Frances?  “As a Reiki Master, Project BeamON gives me the opportunity to continue paying it forward. Knowing that we touch the lives of so many people affected with cancer is very important to me. Like so many people, cancer has touched my life; both my parents had cancer with my mother dying of the disease over 23 years ago and very close friends have breast cancer. I wish my parents could have received a Reiki-attuned blanket surrounding them with the love and warmth it provides. Whether it’s an attuned blanket or the informal education on Reiki Energy Therapy, Project BeamON is a true g-d sent to those people affected with cancer.”

What does Project BeamON mean to Laurie? “I have lost several beloved family members and friends to Cancer. It’s a devastating disease, but amidst the hardship, I was able to find a glimpse of comfort through Project BeamON.

 

When I first discovered Project BeamON, I immediately requested a blanket for a friend’s little boy who was battling Cancer. I was thrilled to learn that my request was processed immediately and even more delighted when a couple weeks later, I received my friend’s note of thanks – Her little boy loved the blanket and took it with him tohis Chemotherapy treatments. He found the blanket to be warm and comfortable and mentioned an uplifting feeling when he cuddled with it. From that moment on, I was hooked on Project BeamON and sought ways to get involved in this fantastic organization.”
