Starting next year, Hooke will invite 48 children who have finished cancer treatment to take part in a six-week yoga class as part of a research study at Children's Hospitals and Clinics of Minnesota.
“It is known that yoga helps adult cancer survivors with sleep and fatigue problems, why don’t we try that with children?” Hooke said.
She’s sure that yoga, with its focus on breathing, stretching and meditation, can help all those areas, as well as with an overall sense of wellness.
Last month, Hooke won a $40,000 grant to expand the study, thanks to Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation, which raises money for research on children's cancer.
