The Virginia Thurston Healing Garden is a special place in Harvard, Massachusetts for women and their families coping with breast cancer.

The Healing Garden is the only place in the country to provide much needed non-medical support without financial barriers for those experiencing the harsh and often debilitating realities of breast cancer treatment.  No one is ever turned away.  Some of their services include:  individual and family counseling, preparation for surgery, acupuncture, massage, nutritional counseling, yoga, exercise, etc.

The Healing Garden, which operates year round, is set on 10 acres of lush seasonal gardens planted by Ginny Thurston.  When Ginny lost her life to breast cancer, her husband, Bill and psychotherapist BetsyTyson-Smith, a breast cancer survivor, founded the Healing Garden in her memory.  Betsy serves as its Executive Director.
