The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation

Manduka donated mats to the The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation. Carcinoid is a deadly neuroendocrine cancer, currently with no cure. The Caring for Carcinoid Foundation (CFCF) is the only 501(c)(3) nonprofit dedicated to discovering a cure for carcinoid cancer. The vision of CFCF is to eliminate the suffering of patients, families and caregivers affected by carcinoid and related neuroendocrine tumors. At the inaugural Awareness Weekend in March of 2009, CFCF wanted to provide patients with a relaxing yoga session, from which they could take away valuable tools to continue practicing at home. Manduka provided each CFCF patient with their own high-performance yoga mat, and Manduka Ambassador Kishan Shah led a morning Vinyasa Yoga session, providing patients with the necessary foundation to begin a therapeutic home practice.
