Supporting research efforts is imperative.

Exercise is challenging. How do you keep clients motivated and engaged?

What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
After Cynthia succumbed to the treacherous disease just three months after being diagnosed, her two daughters vowed to fight back however they could. They raise both money and awareness in support of their cause through fundraising and cancer support groups.

What do you love most about your job?
We love that we are able to connect with other Sarcoma—specifically Leiomyosarcoma—patients on a deeper, emotional level. We know firsthand the struggle of Leiomyosarcoma and we want to do our part to support others battling the disease.

The Cynthia Solomon Holmes Foundation

One of the most aggressive forms of cancer, leiomyosarcoma is blessedly rare. But that rarity is a double-edged sword. Where more common forms of cancer receive international attention, this smooth-muscle cancer is really only known to a handful of specialists at a few teaching hospitals. Because the disease does not respond well to chemotherapy and radiation, catching it early is necessary to allow for the option of surgery, but most doctors are unfamiliar with LMS. Increasing awareness and funding research into more effective treatments are critical goals. After their mother—once devoted to her church and family—succumbed to the treacherous disease just three months after being diagnosed, Chandalyn Williams and Crystal Tate vowed to fight back however they could. Through The Cynthia Solomon Holmes Foundation, they raise both money and awareness in support of their cause through fundraising marathons, brunches, and cancer support groups.
