THE T. E. A. L. CAFE
Survivors Sharing through the Arts
The Therapeutic Expressions and Artistic Letters Cafe' is an extension of The T.E.A.L. Workshop that we have at Serenity, Courage and Wisdom, Inc. (SCAWINC) Here we will have cancer survivors share their creative writing live onstage, honor and celebrate the life of survivor's cancer FREE versary, and honor H. E. R. O. S. within the community past and present who have given a helping hand to other survivors by Helping to Heal, Educating and Empowering, Regaining Self-Respect, Overcoming Obstacles, with the Strength to Survive. The coffeehouse setting has an intimate ambiance with the serving and smell of rich coffee and tea drinks, hot or cold and special elegant horsderves and gourmet treats. This is one of our major fundraising events where there will be a silent auction used to fund future T. E. A. L. Café events and to aid us in providing support to cancer survivors within the local community through our H. E. R. O. S. Project. With this initiative, our goal is to assist survivors with meeting their needs as they go through the journey of cancer starting with diagnosis, through treatment and with life after cancer. This project is where SCAWINC helps survivors get connected with the right resources to meet their needs. We help survivors who are in need of assistance with food, utilities, and transportation to their appointments. At this event, the community will also have the opportunity to sponsor a survivor by giving to our H. E. R. O. S. Grant. This grant is another way that we will fund our H. E. R. O. S. project for emergency services to meet their needs.
