Yoga as mental health treatment for cancer survivors: A grant proposal
by Andrews, Amanda, M.S.W., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 57; 1523186
Abstract (Summary)

The purpose of this grant proposal was to develop and fund a yoga program to provide yoga classes and the coordinating group and individual therapies for cancer survivors. This program is to take place in Missoula, Montana, the home town of the grant writer. The Missoula Family YMCA was selected as the hosting agency for this project.

Cancer survivors have been found to be at high risk for depression. After reviewing the literature on yoga and its implications for use among those with symptoms of depression, the grant writer designed a comprehensive yoga program: Moving Forward Yoga. After searching for funding sources, the Give Back Yoga Foundation was chosen as the grant funder. It was found that this foundation's mission and goals were closely in line with the purpose of Moving Forward Yoga.

Actual funding was not required for this thesis project; therefore this grant was not submitted to the foundation.
