CorePower Yoga has created this page to raise money, love, and support for the Mistler family during this difficult time.

I have been living with Danielle Mistler for about six months, and she always brought a sense of light and positivity to our home. She never let on about the struggles she was going through in her personal life. So I was so shocked when she told me that she had to take a trip to the east coast to be with her family, and to help her mother as she was battling stage four breast cancer.

Danielle's mother, Karen, was diagnosed with 3a breast cancer in 2004. At the time she was busy raising four children, so she took every suggestion of her doctor and underwent intense chemotherapy, a double mastectomy, dozens of tests and reconstructive surgery. Not only did it take an emotional and physical toll on Karen in her family, it destroyed them financially.

Karen was in remission for a few years while the family attempted to rebuild, but this past April, the cancer returned, this time as stage four. It had since spread to the lungs and the lymph nodes.

Since Karen could no longer physically or financially withstand chemotherapy, she decided her only option was to treat her body by nourishing it from the inside out. She began eating raw, juicing and engaging in light exercise.

As someone who had lost a parent to cancer also, I understood the situation and felt helpless about what I could do.
When Danielle told me that she was trying to raise money to support a healthy diet, lifestyle and a few medical checkups, it seemed so do-able.

There is no cure for cancer, but there something to be said about the healing power of love and community support. Taking inspiration from the Mistler's we at Corepower Yoga would like to dedicate this page to 'Karen's Cure' to offer our own love and support. Please join us!
