The Wellness Community Unites In Support of a Beloved Local Massage Teacher

Cindy Anderson, LMT, MTI, a beloved long-time instructor at the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School was recently diagnosed with Stage Four Gastrointestinal Stromal Tumor (GIST) cancer.

This is a rare form of cancer for which there is chemotherapy but no dependable cure.

Day of Massage for Cindy Anderson Fundraiser

The reality of a career in teaching in our country is that a diagnosis like Cindy’s is a tremendous financial burden.

In an effort to support Cindy, show our love and appreciation for the contribution she has made to our school and massage programs, and simply support her as a fellow human being, the Lauterstein-Conway Massage School is organizing a special event to engage the massage community in supporting Cindy.

The Day of Massage for Cindy Anderson is virtual fundraiser taking place on Tuesday, November 13th.

We are asking Austin-area massage therapists and clients to contribute the monetary value of one massage to Cindy’s Go Fund Me campaign.

If you cannot contribute, please consider sharing this post via the social media platform of your choice with friends and family.
