OUR MISSION

WATERTOWN, SD

My Happy Place

My Happy Place is a 501(c)3 organization comprised of passionate volunteers whose intention is to create healing environments for individuals who are struggling with a serious health issue. A “healing environment” is often defined as one that has a nurturing and therapeutic effect. We simply call it, “my happy place”.

For the person on a serious health journey, a healing environment can help to lower stress and anxiety, reduce pain, accelerate recovery and promote a sense of well-being. My Happy Place does all that, and more. Often times, the news that the individual is going to have a “happy place” created for them, is the first good news they’ve received since their diagnosis. This gives them something to look forward to other than focusing on their illness.

We work closely with the recipient to design and personalize the selected space at their home that will provide the most benefit. We will create a place that embodies soothing colors, cleanliness, sounds, scents and visual stimuli. We use specially curated items that will provide comfort, resulting in a new space that will help to strengthen their ability to cope and recover.

What we offer is one part of the healing process, and we believe a very significant part. Our hope is that each time the recipient walks into their “happy place”, they are reminded they are not alone on their journey-they have the love and support of friends, family and their community

My cancer journey started in 2018 when a Melanoma tumor was found on my left shoulder. It was surgically removed and there was no indication that it spread to any lymph nodes. A year later I had a PET Scan that showed no evidence of Melanoma in my body. I continued to see my Dermatologist every 3 months and received clear skin checks. In the beginning of May 2023, I started having headaches and blurry vision. By the end of the month, the headaches were unbearable….
