Care Provider Honoree
Donna Corbett-Lewis, Owner of Atrium Health Spa
"Joey, my dear friend and "buddy check" partner, changed my life! Joey, while doing her breast check in 1998, she found a lump. Within the month Joey found herself waking up from surgery with only one breast. I had the honor or walking with Joey through the emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of this huge journey! I went on a mission to find what would help. My background as a massage therapist and in body-mind therapy enabled me to help her process the anger, rage, fear and "why me" questions."
"Joey told me that she was helped most by feeling a partnership with someone who would listen without judging, who also encouraged her, and who helped, as she said, "keep me out of the dumps. I did not have to walk it alone; I will never forget the support and love I received!"
"For seven years at the Atrium Health Spa, we have worked to help people detoxify after diagnosis. The joy of seeing Joey as a 12-year survivor has caused us to reach out to others who are dealing with cancer. We have added a focus on prevention and helping family members who are at high risk maintain their health."
"Our goal is to empower women to follow their passion and to give them hope. It has been my joy to hear women say, "this is a safe haven in my month of therapy. I can totally relax without being poked. Truly the highlight of my month is to come here."
