Discover the Sajni Center in Amesbury
Many of you may have heard of Lucy’s Love bus, founded by Lucy Grogan in 2006, from her hospital bed at Tufts Floating Hospital for Children in Boston. Lucy was only 8 years old when she was diagnosed with Acute Myeloid Leukemia and thanks to the financial support of folks in her hometown of Amesbury, MA, Lucy had consistent access to integrative therapies such as acupuncture, massage, horseback riding, art, and music therapy. She decided that when she was "done with cancer," she would make sure that all children had the same access to the helpful integrative therapies that she took advantage of during treatment. Lucy's primary concern was to deliver comfort... until a cure. Lucy passed away at age 12, but her legacy of care and compassion live on through Lucy's Love Bus.
Recently, Lucy's Love Bus has expanded as they noticed a great need for a healing PLACE for families and the community to gather and grow together. They have opened The Sajni Center, named for 8 year old Sajni Chakrabarti, who passed away at age 8 from a brain tumor, and is a brand new healing space in Amesbury, Massachusetts. This space is filled with love and light, guided by Lucy and Sajni, and provides innovative workshops and programs for those who need them.
Programs at The Sajni Center are open to families, regardless of income, who have children from birth to age 21 who have a life-threatening illness or chronic physical health condition not developmental in nature that affects a child's daily life or requires more frequent and intensive medical care than is typically required. All kid programs are open to siblings as well as the child with cancer or life-threatening illness.
