"My closest friend was hospitalized with cancer. I had the very real privilege of being able to provide her with some comfort. I wouldn’t have felt confident had I not taken Compassionate Touch®. Being able to provide a service to a friend enabled me to get past feeling helpless in the face of her disease."
