CHEERS TO YOUR HEALTH …
Education is a vital component of the National Cheers Foundation mission. Our goal is to empower women through knowledge and create health awareness by promoting educational forums, lectures, luncheons and retreats.
We are thrilled to be entering our 12th year and extremely proud of the strides we have made. Over the years we have successfully initiated educational opportunities through the Girl Scouts of America, Salk Institute, Scripps Research Institute, the Doris Howell Foundation and last year’s first CHEERS TO HEALTH retreat. Looking forward to our next retreat.

Grew up in Montana with deep roots to Mother Earth and Father Sky, her family and the native culture. She learned many styles of traditional healing from her Mother and Grandmother from the Turtle Mountain band of Indians. Her passions include healing with food and herbal medicine, laying hands and most recently practicing energy healing for an Energy Master.
Azelya is a Sustainable Agriculture student who focuses on organic and regenerative farming practices. She is a nature and plant enthusiast with a passion for youth advocacy and traditional foods. She currently works for a nonprofit organization with a departmental focus on natural resources.
During our experiences, the seeker lays down or sits in a relaxed comfortable position with their eyes closed. The sessions may be accompanied by music to allow people to enter into an altered state of consciousness and receptivity. The guide of the process will often touch specific areas of the body to activate different qi meridians or energetic pathways.
Emotion purges dives deeper into the depths of the being but often is accompanied by a blissful state once they integrate their emotional processing which may take a few sessions.
We assist people to find the Divine Within and Without of themselves. We do not provide answers but help people find questions to guide them to the heart of their journey.

What We Believe
We at the National Cheers Foundation believe in “Celebrating Life through Life’s Celebrations.” It is our mission to empower women to live life with vitality, free from the five primary health threats, which are heart disease, mental illness, cancer, osteoporosis and autoimmune diseases. We intend to raise funds in support of organizations that endeavor to help women improve their lives through care, health, education, empowerment, research and support.
What We Do
The National Cheers Foundation was established in the summer of 2012 by a group of caring professionals and community leaders in La Jolla, California. Facilitated by our annual gala and “joie de vivre” grant program, the foundation raises funds to support medical research and health institutions, health advocacy groups and outreach programs, and has developed a resource and educational program that offers to women the ability to empower themselves.
We Give Thanks
We are currently interviewing applications for our annual round of funding. Non-profits throughout San Diego County are invited to apply for our annual grants through January 31st, please visit our Grant Page for details. Please be assured that these submissions are thoroughly vetted and members of our grants team personally do onsite visits for each applicant that meets our Women’s Health criteria. We give thanks to our sponsors who generously support our gala. This allows us to maximize our contributions to all our beneficiaries.
