A Word

From Our Founder

“Most families have a woman who serves as the anchor. I am honored to be able to provide that mother, sister, daughter or friend battling life-leveling cancer, with a sanctuary, that affirms, SHE Matters, while allowing her to decompress and recalibrate herself.”

– Senita M. Hill
