TEA PARTIES FOR BREAST CANCER AWARENESS are feel-good sessions that author Raining Deer presents to share her journey of trial and triumph. Infused with cultural nuances based on her Native American spiritual experience and close association with African priests, Raining Deer enlivens her tea parties with stories of her work with celebrities, dealing with breast cancer from diagnosis to treatment, nutrition and life perspective, and the benefits of prayer, with the parties culminating in festive gift giving. Raining Deer's Tea Party for Breast Cancer Awareness is an awesome way to engage women in conversation about a life-altering condition, while having fun and learning to look to a future full of promise.
Life is an adventure. It's just waiting for us to live it!
