A message from the president

Shining Souls Institute has completed an extensive service of community work and done a great deal of research to get where we are today.

In 2004, we were able to reach a diverse group of individuals with cancer surviviorship seminars and mentorship programs that touched thousands of individual lives in U.S, Europe and Asia. We are deeply commited to listening to the community, our supporters and volunteers to make responsive and informed decisions.

On behalf of the board of directors, I would like to say thank you for your support and generous contributions to the Shining Souls Institute.  We look forward to serving the community in future.
