About the Healing for HS Walk

A Message from Wanda Lee : We want to thank everyone for taking time for themselves, as we bring awareness to the HS Community.  When we started this journey, we knew that we needed to have something for everyone and  virtual for those bedridden or with different abilities.  We hope that you feel the love, hope and peace within.  And know that we are forever on this journey together.  

We want to give you as much support as possible.  Please read the Eventbrite information page. There are facebook groups and a fun facts about HS links. Global Support group link and so much more.

The walk can be done anytime of the day and anywhere.  You may participate with your body or your mind.  Whatever is best for you. We invite you to participate in all/ some of the activities.  Please know that these are only ideas, you may do all or none or think of something else?  It is your walk and your journey.  What ever best fits your needs. There is no right or wrong way to do this.
