Chia's Silver Lining

"I discovered the 'Locker Room', the area where patients wait together in wigs and robes and wait for treatment. Who we were before meant nothing, but there we found comfort. ... There, I found peace." ~ Chia Wollschlager Chia's Silver Lining is an online cancer support store (with a physical location as well) whose mission is to encourage and support those going through cancer or other challenging illnesses. We believe that beyond traditional medicine, (which is vital to physical healing), we need emotional healing that comes from compassion, comfort, and connection with others. Founder, Chia Wollschlager, is a breast cancer survivor who saw a need for this other type of healing during her journey. Out of this void, she decided to make a difference with Chia's Silver Lining.
