Lainey Honors Her Mother, Irene A. Phrydas

 In Gem Resonance, Inspiration, Shows and Events

Thirty years ago when my mother, Irene Phrydas, was diagnosed with breast cancer at 69, there were no support programs to help her through the physical and emotional challenges she faced. Mama chose to work full time throughout her chemotherapy treatments, concealing her illness. Our family was close and we supported her and each other though the trauma of cancer.

I turn 68 this month and am happy to report I am finally healthy after the challenges of a prolonged immune deficiency. I began a series of monthly infusions at Piedmont West and across the hall was the Chapman Cancer Wellness Center.  I got to know the staff and was deeply impressed by the range of free programs they offered to patients and caregivers that engaged body, mind, emotion and spirit. How I wish that my mother, father, sister and I could have been supported by such services when she became ill. Today anyone affected by cancer, regardless of where they are receiving treatment, can attend and benefit from the insightful programs the Chapman Cancer Wellness Center offers.

Through this Trunk Show, I am able to donate thirty percent of sales from the evening to the Center. This will support patients and their families during their tender and difficult journeys with cancer, moving towards improved wholistic health. Please join me for a lovely evening graciously hosted by Susan Powell of Good Living Real Estate with delicious hors d’oeuvres and refreshments prepared by Chef Nancy Waldeck.
