A very active 81-year-old member of our church got bile duct cancer and decided to accept chemotherapy after surgery. She had been a nurse so I asked her if she knew about Therapeutic Touch and Reiki. She not only knew about them but also allowed me to visit her every week from Thanksgiving 2000 until she died in Sept 2002 to do a session. She said she would always sleep for a while after our sessions, then be free of chemotherapy side effects like nausea and vomiting until the next treatment, and I would go to do another session. Her daughter has told me how much the sessions meant to her mother.
