Our Story

Healing Winds was launched in 2014 by Suzanne Johnson. After her own courageous battle with Stage 2 Breast Cancer, Suzanne was encouraged by friends and family to use her life-long love of sailing to provide others being challenged by cancer with a much needed reprieve. Through Healing Winds, Suzanne created a unique way for families to reconnect and create lasting memories together. She shares her passion for sailing, and the freedom she experiences out on the water with all of our guests.

From our beginning, Healing Winds has been supported and shaped by countless Board Members, volunteers, friends and donors. We thank you for your tireless commitment to our mission and your overwhelming generosity.
