How a hay company and two breast cancer nonprofits are thinking outside the box to support breast cancer survivors and their families through podcasting, social media, and horses.
Kimberly, ID, Oct. 11, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Standlee is pleased to partner with two breast cancer nonprofit organizations, Living Beyond Breast Cancer and Riding Beyond, throughout the month of October to support breast cancer awareness in a unique way. Through a social media campaign supported with resources on Standlee’s blog and their podcast, Standlee is donating monetary funds in support of Riding Beyond by sharing how horses can make a difference to those with breast cancer.
Standlee visited with Ann-Marie Ramsey, a breast cancer survivor, Riding Beyond participant and volunteer, on the Beyond the Barn Podcast about the difference that horses made during her recovery of breast cancer.
“It’s nice, in a way, that it’s not a person. You don’t have to explain yourself necessarily to the horse. You don’t have to talk at all, and the horse just kind of gets it,” shares Ramsey.
Standlee, Living Beyond Breast Cancer, and Riding Beyond encourage everyone to support the breast cancer community in two simple ways. The first way is by downloading episode 44 of the Beyond the Barn® podcast “How Horses Can Heal the Trauma that Comes with Breast Cancer” featuring stories of firsthand breast cancer experiences and how horses can heal the trauma that comes from enduring breast cancer treatments.Download episode 44 “How Horses Can Heal the Trauma that Comes with Breast Cancer” now on Apple, Spotify or Google Podcast apps. The second way is to build a community of support by sharing experiences with Living Beyond Breast Cancer, the four-star rated non-profit Standlee previously supported in 2021. Share a picture to your social media page of a horse that supported you or your family through this breast cancer journey with the #horsesheal.
For every download on this episode and every image shared with the #horsesheal, from now through October 31, 2022, Standlee will be donating $5 to Riding Beyond, a therapeutic riding program for women recovering from breast cancer treatment.
In 2021, Standlee donated $4,000 to Living Beyond Breast Cancer. The experience was a success and Standlee looks forward continuing supporting this cause in 2022. Episode 20 featured stories and experiences from Standlee’s pink hay truck driver, Stephanie Henderson and VP of Standlee Hay Trucking, Bobby Delgado.
Henderson says, “I’ve been approached by breast cancer survivors a couple of times, and they’re just lit up about the truck and then on top of it, that a woman drives the truck. Those experiences I will cherish all the time.”
Standlee continues to support the breast cancer community.
“Since making the decision to paint one of our trucks pink, we’ve been honored to continue our commitment to the breast cancer community through encouragement, support and awareness,” says Dusty Standlee, CEO of Standlee.
