The Healing Moves Foundation hosted an interactive two day workshop in November 2011.  Master Instructor Doug Saunders with the Pink Ribbon Program provided the participants with a knowledge base that is essential to the successful evaluation of the breast cancer survivor, from diagnosis to treatment, recovery, prevention of lymphedema and proper exercise guidelines and protocols.  Physical therapists, Pilates instructors, personal trainers, lymphedema treatment specialists and nurses throughout California and Nevada attended our event.

We would like to thank our co-sponsor Saint Mary’s Center for Health & Fitness for supplying their beautiful facility and for all of the delicious meals and snacks served throughout the event!!


Breast Cancer Survivor Helps Others Achieve Their Best Possible Recovery

Doreen Puglisi, M.S. is an exercise physiologist and educator who transformed her professional – then personal – experience with cancer into a successful rehabilitation program for breast cancer survivors.  In just six years, the nonprofit organization she established has trained and certified more than 400 instructors in the United States, Australia and Europe to help women recover their mobility, strength, and range of motion following breast cancer surgery.

The Pink Ribbon Program originated when Doreen began working with breast cancer survivors as a Pilates Instructor and Exercise Physiologist.  She was stunned to discover that survivors were discharged following mastectomy, lymph node dissections and even reconstructive surgeries without a plan for either physical therapy or rehabilitation of the affected side.  With her energy, drive and knowledge of exercise physiology, Doreen set out to develop a program to help her clients achieve their best possible recovery.

Why volunteer?

There is nothing quite like helping people who are in need. When you start to feel overwhelmed with the pressures of life, try to focus on someone else’s life. Open your eyes to the challenges others are facing. Oftentimes our personal struggles don’t seem so daunting when compared to the worries of our friends or acquaintances. If you are able to give help to others in need, a true healing will begin to take place. You will help heal another person, but most importantly you will help heal yourself.
