5th Annual Yoga Warriors Event Raises Money, Awareness in Fight Against Colon Cancer

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - I want to take a moment and say thank you to everyone who came and supported my 5th annual Yoga Warriors Fighting Colon Cancer event.

We had a packed room of people of all different ages and ethnicities attending this year. Of course, we did yoga, but there was also a message about early detection for colon cancer, and how that can save a person's life. 

Yoga Warriors is in honor of so many cancer survivors who have supported us, but it's also in honor of my daughter Queah, who died from the disease seven years ago. 

"It felt like we could feel Queah's spirit here. It was so peaceful and relaxing and we really appreciate it," says Gayla Earls, Yoga Warriors participant.

"What I took away from this is that yoga really does heal... even if you don't have any experience with doing it. Just by doing a small thing like yoga really does make a difference," says Bailey Faulkner, Yoga Warriors participant.

Yoga Warriors not only raise awareness, but we also pay for liquid nutritional supplements for cancer survivors and offer free yoga classes four times a month at the Carti Cancer Center Campus.
