About Us

Our Mission

Established in 2017, we are a nonprofit organization who's goal is to improve health literacy, health promotion and community awareness for women's health conditions.  Primarily, our organization focuses on education regarding ovarian and other gynecological cancers by hosting seminars, workshops and fundraising events. 

Our Purpose

Tiffani Mickens, Founder of The Joys of a Healing Spirit, Inc experienced personal loss at the hand of ovarian cancer.  Mrs. Belinda O’Neal Britton her cousin passed away after an 18-month battle with ovarian cancer. 

After many years of educating countless families and patients with life-threatening and even terminal health conditions Tiffani now understood that her “calling”.  It is to educate her local community regarding fatal women's health conditions.  Collectively, on both the local and national levels there are limited resources for women and their families who are affected by ovarian and other gynecological cancers.  We can be the change agent.  Let's stand up against cancer!
