To the Editor,

Forest Moon: Celebrating Cancer Survivorship would like to thank all those who made our recent fundraiser at the Stump Sprouts Lodge and Cross Country Ski Center a success. Forest Moon lights a path through cancer but we can’t shine that light without lots of help from individual, corporate and foundation supporters. A fresh snowfall overnight and a crisp, bright January afternoon made for excellent trail conditions. And the hearty home-made dinner was a terrific way to relax and share the fun after skiing and snowshoeing.

We’d especially like to acknowledge Lloyd and Suzanne, our hosts at Stump Sprouts in Hawley, MA, and volunteers Edite Cunha and Betty Wolfson for serving a delicious dinner and Dave Maxcy, Marianna McKimm, Rol Hesselbart, and Ken Simons for helping with rentals and ski lessons. We’d also like to thank Sam’s Outdoor Outfitters for providing cash cards as prizes for the raffle.

All the funds raised will be devoted to Forest Moon’s free support programs for cancer survivors and their loved ones in northern Massachusetts and southern Vermont and New Hampshire.

Upcoming programs include “Circus for Survivors” workshops at the New England Center for Circus Arts in Brattleboro, 10-week writing workshops in Greenfield and Brattleboro, and a couples retreat in Jacksonville. And, later in August, a weekend retreat at Stump Sprouts.

Richard Ewald,

Executive Director,
