High Fives would like to shine light on a similar minded foundation, the Chanda Plan Foundation, keep up the good work!
The mission of the Chanda Plan Foundation is to improve the quality of life for persons with physical disabilities through direct services and systemic change to access integrative therapies.
Their direct services include acupuncture, massage, chiropractic, adaptive exercise and adaptive yoga. Services are provided at the foundation and at provider locations nationwide. Integrative therapies promote wellness and healing for acute and chronic conditions caused by physical disabilities. Better health outcomes and lower medical bills galvanized their pursuit for systemic change to have integrative therapies covered by Medicaid.
The Chanda Plan Foundation was created when founder, Chanda Hinton’s life was saved by integrative therapies. On her deathbed, at a scant 59 lbs. she was desperate to try anything. Through integrative therapies Chanda regained her health and felt more alive than she ever had since that life changing day when she became a quadriplegic. Why in 10 years had integrative therapies not been recommended? Why wasn’t anybody talking about the benefits? These questions and Chanda’s life saving outcome fueled the start of the foundation and the mission of improving the quality of life for persons with physical disabilities through direct services and systemic change to access integrative therapies.
