I was introduced to Peaceful Remedies by my amazing friend and chosen sister, Chris Haessig. It holds a special place in my heart because of how Mary supported Chris through her cancer diagnosis and treatment, even as she was going through her own cancer. When Chris told me about the legacy Mary left by establishing Peaceful Remedies, I was touched and amazed by her strength and compassion. I thought about how every city needs a place like PR.
Although, I don’t live in Oswego, I graduated from SUNY Oswego and the city will always be a part of me. I do my best to participate in as many activities and fundraising opportunities as possible, even though, I am not local. The quarantine brought Zoom Book clubs, that I was able to be a part of. I met wonderful people that I now consider friends. I have participated in a Zoom Reiki session. I also was the Captain of team “Inclusivity On Par”, in the first annual Mary Gosek Golf tournament. I have not had cancer, but it has touched my life through so many people I know and love. I have a life altering neuromuscular disease and the services Peaceful Remedies provides are beneficial to everyone with any life altering illness and their caregivers. I wish I lived closer so I could be a part of all that Peaceful Remedies has to offer. - Nancy S
