On April 3rd, the world lost a truly amazing person. A mother, wife, daughter, sister and friend, Courtney Dickson Whalen touched many lives and leaves behind a legacy of love, gratitude and community. In honor of Courtney, the Strike Out Fear Foundation is dedicating our current research into complementary treatments and healing to Courtney’s memory, and to her family— Will, Tyler, and Price. As Courtney navigated her cancer diagnosis and treatment, she and Will became increasingly aware that Western medicine with all of its advances, does not— for the most part— honor the psychological and spiritual challenges facing the patient. The integration of the body, mind, and soul in treatment is essential for healing. We offer a list of Complementary Resources for Healing in our Resources section that have helped patients we have met in our work over the last eight years.
Courtney’s family has requested that donations be made to the Strike Out Fear Foundation. You may make a donation by clicking the donate button. Please note that the donation is in memory of Courtney Dickson Whalen in the comments section. If you prefer to send a check, please send it to:
