My aunt, Deirdre Duff-Allen of Aspen, Colorao, is a cancer survivor who has just launched a venture she is calling Survive-All. Through greeting cards, countdown calendars, inspirational booklets, workshops and a TV show, she hopes to inspire cancer patients, their families and the professionals who care for them to live for today. Having spent nearly all of her money on treatment, funds for getting the business off the ground are low, so she is seeking investors and experts who are willing to donate their time.
Topping her list of “wants” is money. She is looking for corporate investors who would like to sponsor workshop events or her TV program; accountants willing to donate their time to help her get her business started; attorneys to consult on things like copyright laws; graphic designers to help her get her greeting card designs finalized; marketers and card reps to help her get her products (cards, calendars and booklets) into the marketplace. Her cards are tailored to cancer patients, so anyone with a specific knowledge of this demographic would be great!
The workshops are designed for cancer patients. Through a series of creative exercises, the patients learn different coping methods for relaxation. I’ll look forward to seeing your readers’ solutions.
