Do you ever experience digestive discomfort? You’re not alone! Millions of Americans suffer from indigestion, cramps, acid reflux, bloating, constipation and diarrhea.  Luckily, there are specific foods that can help with many of these common digestive complaints and may help trim your waistline at the same time. Choose one of three available dates to attend this workshop where you will learn how common foods such as garlic, onions, apples and plums may be causing your digestive system undue stress. While other foods such as spinach, tomatoes, blueberries and strawberries may help keep your digestive system humming along. Join us to learn some quick tips for good digestion and sample recipes.  Presented by Sue Delegrange, M.S., R.D., CSSD

Thank you Dare to Dream Day Camp

Posted on July 24th, 2013

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

On Saturday, Dare to Dream Youth Ranch hosted a day camp for children with cancer in partnership with our organization.  The children and their families enjoyed a day of horseback riding, games, and ranch experiences.

This partnership gave these brave kids and their families the opportunity to do fun activities that enrich their experience and build emotional strength for the challenges they face. Cancer Services is committed to making a positive impact on the lives of these families in a number of ways, and this day camp is just one of them. It was a special day.

Bret Procise, Executive Board Member and Founder at Dare to Dream Youth Ranch, says, “This day camp is exactly why we do what we do here at the Ranch, and is right in line with our mission to encourage children, heal horses, build the family and spread the message of hope.”
