On April 3, 2019, 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 has dedicated our current research on complementary treatments and healing to Courtney’s memory, and to her family— Will, Tyler, and Price. As Courtney navigated her cancer 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 is essential for healing. To that end, we have compiled a list of Complementary Resources for Healing in the Resources section that offers insight into ways to integrate healing methodologies into cancer treatment.
Courtney’s family has requested that donations be made in her honor to support the work of The Strike Out Fear Foundation. You may donate by clicking the DONATE button on the site.
