"Forget for a Moment" 2021 Online Version

From 2016 to 2019, COKANNA Bamboo Clothing in collaboration with Salon Fiorella and Holtz Spa were honoured to treat 15 women going through breast cancer to an evening of pampering. Then in 2020, the pandemic hit and the in-person event had to be cancelled.

Rather than let another year pass by, I've decided to host an online version during the month of October, Breast Cancer Awareness Month. It will be a series of 4 events focused on pampering the mind, body & spirit during this challenging time in your life.

If you are currently going through treatment for breast cancer, please register for this FREE series of events.

Here's the schedule of events:

Tuesday | October 5 | 11:00 am: Casual Chat & Share

Thursday | October 7 | 11:00 am: Reiki Energy Healing with Christie Flynn, Reiki Practitioner & Psychic Medium

Friday | October 15 | 1:00 pm: Mind Body Self Care During Cancer Treatment with Beth Hoag, Cancer Rehab Physiotherapist

Thursday | October 21 | 9:30 am: Gratitude Card Making with Brenda Wilson, Creative Treats Club

Saturday | October 30 | 10:30 am: Guided Meditation Using Your 5 Senses with Christine Klerian, Meditation Guide, Yoga Instructor, and Energy Therapist

There are 15 spots available so please register early to reserve your spot! Once you get your VIP Reservation, you'll receive Zoom links to each of the events.

You'll also receive a gift bag full of thoughtful gifts and products generously donated by local small businesses.
