Why I'm using HandUp for my monthly YMCA membership fee.

I am currently in the process of focusing on facilitating my healing process and a YMCA gym membership will really help me with focusing on my health and self-care. Any support you can provide me as I move through this journey would be greatly appreciated!

About me.

I've been a healing artist for over twenty years. I've worked for all the 5 star spas. I've worked with a lot of holistic doctors, acupuncturists, chiropractors, occupational therapists, physical therapists, and other healers. I've worked in many different venues - from high end spas to hospice to healing centers, privately for athletes, politicians, diplomats, businessmen, the homeless. Although I've been a healer for most of my life, I am currently focusing on healing myself with aqua therapy, self-care and chronic pain maintenance.

My backstory.

I moved back to SF the weekend the Giants won the world series in 2010. I had been traveling (lived overseas on a Portuguese island doing body work), and moved back here to take care of my dad who had a bone marrow transplant. He had brain surgery due to a rare blood cancer, multiple melanoma. He had the bone marrow transplant at Scripps in San Diego and soon after passed away. I got here and had just enough money to rent a room, but was in complete shock about how expensive SF had become due to the current market. I ran out of money, and became homeless, all while trying to get work. During that time, I fell two stories down stairs. This caused massive physical pain, and I have a major surgery. Two girls also tried to rob me and I also experienced police brutality, causing me further chronic injury. Because of these reasons, I am no longer able to work due to my current physical and mental condition.

My goals, moving forward.

My goal is to facilitate my healing process so I continue my healing journey. This will restore my spiritual, mental, and physical well being and allow for me to become whole again so I can be of service to others through my healing art career; and any other career of service that may present itself through this full circle journey.

Other things I'd like to share about myself.

I love to roller skate, blow bubbles, smoke rainbow joints and eat pop rocks candy all at the same time!
