Story by Allison Goldsmith
March is National Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month
and we would love for you to meet Rachel Howard, a colon cancer survivor, current warrior and vice-chairperson for
The Aunt Sister Project’s board of directors.
As a retired nonprofit executive director, founder of nonprofit consulting firm; Riverhouse Consulting, and a licensed social worker who holds certificates in nonprofit board consulting and leadership coaching for organizational development, Rachel is the perfect choice for vice-chairperson. She is the master at helping new nonprofit organizations jump start their mission and is, “very excited to be present at the birth of ASP.”
Not only does Rachel provide invaluable insight and development to the organization as vice-chairperson, but she also trains as a warrior to regain her physical strength, take care of her mental and emotional health, upkeep her functionality and maintain her quality of life.
When asked how ASP has changed her life, she replied, “the benefits of being part of the program will impact every aspect of your life, from mental and physical health to stamina, mood, and outlook...ASP keeps you accountable to yourself and others. It is about respecting what your body is going through and supporting your body’s feelings...I believe in the mission and want to see ASP flourish.”
