healing project_brochureDoor County Medical Center, with the support of the Sturgeon Bay Visitor Center, invites you to participate in the 7th annual Shop and Dine Day on Saturday, October 6, 2018, to benefit The Healing Project.

The Healing Project provides free integrative health care services to individuals with cancer.

Help us help those with cancer by shopping and dining throughout the city on Saturday, October 6! Participating Sturgeon Bay businesses will donate a portion of their sales to support The Healing Project.

Additionally, Door County Medical Center is giving away three Sturgeon Bay Visitor Gift Certificates. Customers that sign up in participating businesses on the day of the event will have a chance to win a certificate worth $300, $150 or $50!

A cancer diagnosis takes a toll on more than the just the body. Integrative therapies have been shown to benefit the physical, mental and spiritual health of those living with cancer at any stage.

The Healing Project provides a limited number of free integrative health care services to Door County residents living with cancer. Services include acupuncture, energy therapy, massage therapy, nutrition counseling, behavioral health counseling and mindfulness.

“I was truly broken after going through surgery, chemo and radiation. You listened, aided me in finding answers, and helped put my aching body back together. You helped me in so many ways. Thank you.” – The Healing Project Participant

Healing Project participants receive services from DCMC staff at the Sturgeon Bay campus. The program is overseen by Integrative Health Director Dr. Chona Antonio who also provides acupuncture services. The program is funded by the Cancer Healing Fund at the Door County Medical Center Foundation.

Now under the auspices of Door County Medical Center (DCMC), The Healing Project provides free integrative health care services to individuals with cancer. Services include acupuncture, energy therapy, massage therapy, nutrition counseling and behavioral health counseling.

Integrative therapies have been shown to benefit the physical, mental and spiritual health of those living with cancer at any stage. “Through The Healing Project, we offer opportunities to experience the interrelation of body, mind and spirit, and we educate people about the benefits of integrative health care,” says Jennelle Berg, program coordinator.

Studies have shown integrative therapies to be helpful in boosting the immune system, alleviating pain and managing the side effects of cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, radiation and surgery. “Integrative health services can also be tremendously helpful in coping with the emotional side effects of the disease, including anxiety, stress and depression,” says Berg.

A recent Healing Project participant spoke to the program’s impact. “I was truly broken after going through surgery, chemo and radiation,” she says. “You listened, aided me in finding answers, and helped put my aching body back together. Thank you.”

Healing Project participants receive services from DCMC staff. The program is overseen by Healing Project Medical Director Dr. Chona Antonio, who also provides acupuncture services. The program is funded by the Cancer Healing Fund at the Door County Medical Center Foundation.

Ministry Sponsors Women With Spirit Concert at TAP

Ministry Door County Medical Center is proud to sponsor the “Women with Spirit” concert on Friday, Feb. 7 at 7:30 P.M. at Third Avenue Playhouse in Sturgeon Bay. The show, part of Ministry’s “Music Heals” series, features four stellar singer-songwriters: Victoria Vox, Dorothy Scott, Sue Demel and Katie Dahl. Proceeds support The Healing Project, a collaboration between Ministry Door County Medical Center and the Community Clinic of Door County that provides free integrative health care services to Door County women and men with cancer at any stage. Tickets are $15 and can be reserved by calling 920-493-5979. Tickets can also be purchased the night of the show but seating may be limited.

Victoria Vox

Victoria Vox

Victoria Vox has been honing her songwriting and voice for the past ten years, performing around the globe in Australia, Europe, Canada, and across the USA. She began writing songs at age 10, inspired by artists Cyndi Lauper and Madonna. She went on to earn a degree in songwriting from the Berklee College of Music (2001), and then at 24 she was given a ukulele and never looked back. The small four-stringed instrument proved to be an excellent vehicle for her songwriting, while not getting in the way of her endearing vocals and simple but smart lyrics. Originally from Green Bay, WI, Vox now lives in Baltimore, MD.

Dorothy Scott

Dorothy Scott

Dorothy Scott takes a magical stance and melds music and the lyrics into a seamless, living whole. Her work flows effortlessly between genres achieving popularity in pop, folk, blues and alternative. The common bridge is an exquisite vocal style, amazing guitar playing and a gift for discovering the heart of a song. Her live performance is passionate and real, fierce and funny, outspoken and vulnerable. Often compared to Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Jeff Buckley, Dorothy’s style and sound remain uniquely her own. Her tours of the U.S, Ireland, Sweden and Canada have left a loyal and growing following in their wake.

Sue Demel

Sue Demel

Sue Demel’s voice was described by the Huffington Post as a “rich, athletic, octave hurtling instrument that purrs and growls, rocks the foundation and raises the roof. Demel is a well-tuned Maserati. She delivers with such a resplendent shimmer, you almost expect her to blink into a column of light.” Whether it’s scatting, chanting, collaborating, or writing, Sue explodes the pre-conceived notions of singing. As a founding and current member of the folk trio Sons of the Never Wrong, Sue tours nationally, performing original acoustic music. Her songs explore the boundaries of love and redemption. A seasoned back-up vocalist featured on over 50 CDs, Sue is currently a recording artist on Waterbug records.

Katie Dahl

Katie Dahl

Wisconsin singer-songwriter Katie Dahl has performed her original songs everywhere from the dusty cliff country of Mali, West Africa, to the winding canals of southern France, to the cedar forests of the American northwoods. The depth and power of Dahl’s alto voice, the literate candor of her original songs, and the easy humor of her live performances have earned her the chance to share stages with some of America’s most respected songwriters, including Julie Gold and Dar Williams. In 2010, she was named Big Top Chautauqua Songwriter of the Year.

During the winter season, Ministry Door County Medical Center sponsors several concerts throughout Door County featuring some of the best Blues, Jazz, Folk, and Alternative music from national touring artists to help raise funds for the Healing Project. Coming up next: Peter Mulvey at Caffe Tlazo in Algoma on Friday, February 28 at 7:30 p.m.
