Dear Friends,

As we continued to navigate through the challenging circumstances of the global pandemic, our mission of staying connected to those we serve was even more vital than ever. During our fiscal year 2021-2022, our creative and agile team did not waiver and remained keenly focused on being there for our SOUL RYEDERS communities: clients, caregivers, volunteers and donors. Alongside managing through another year of unpredictability, we were thrilled to be able to toast some milestones: celebrating 15 years of this extraordinary organization and finally honoring our founder Sandy Samberg who transitioned from her role as Executive Director last year. We have included some highlights of both!

Balancing our clients’ needs and working toward in-person interactions invited many thought-provoking conversations for our team. We found that our clients, in active treatment or unable to leave their homes due to physical, immune compromised or geographical constraints, were relieved to find support from our newly formed, robust virtual programming. We continue to evaluate and build on all we have learned for current and future opportunities.

As we reflect on the 2021/2022 fiscal year, we are proud to share in this report how our impact, made possible with your help, impacted those we serve and here are a few highlights:

• Clients finding strength: Your support has enabled us to form new targeted supported groups that connect clients with similar cancer journeys. You will read about two of our young survivor clients who found strength and comfort from being part of our unique programming and sought new personal paths after their cancer treatments.

• Caregiver resources: Providing resources and strategies to be an effective and impactful caregiver while paying attention to your own health and wellbeing can be a challenging prospect. We highlight a caregiver who found our oneon-one support an anchor during the emotional demands of caring for a terminally ill adult child.

• Altruistic support: The unique endeavors of volunteers and donors in our community are heartwarming. Our care packages have become a meaningful way to let our clients know we are thinking of them and often give them a moment of joy when they are delivered to their doorstep. We were grateful to receive some very special donations as well as grants to help augment these packages.

As we create our strategic plan for the next five years, the Leadership Team and Board of Directors are working collaboratively and emboldened by the fundamental support of our community. We are committed to building on our successful foundation and will remain keenly focused on deepening our connections with all those we serve. We look forward to sharing more of our plans with you in the coming months and are excited to let you know that we recently made steps toward some in-person volunteer opportunities in the fall of 2022 and will be announcing an incredible new event coming in the Spring of 2023!

Our hearts remain filled with deep appreciation for your commitment to supporting our mission and investing in the future of SOUL RYEDERS. Together we are making a difference in the lives of those impacted by cancer.

With gratitude, Billy Miller Heidi
Kitlas President, Board of Directors Executive Director



Whether you are newly diagnosed, experiencing a recurrence or are in remission, we are here to support you. Every one of our clients is a person first and one size does not fit all. Clients are defined at SOUL RYEDERS as anyone who has ever been diagnosed with cancer. SOUL RYEDERS will help ensure that you are surrounded by community and supported by those who understand each phase — from diagnosis, through treatment and beyond.


As a caregiver, paying attention to your own health and wellbeing is imperative. Caregivers are frequently overlooked and usually stretched to capacity. Being there for your loved one means taking care of yourself too. SOUL RYEDERS provides an empathetic ear during what can be a turbulent time. In the moments when you feel overwhelmed, our team is here for you, providing coping strategies and information on how to be an effective and impactful caregiver.


Our dedicated volunteers are the core of SOUL RYEDERS. All of our volunteer opportunities are client-focused; involving both direct and indirect support. We could not provide our wide range of services without this tireless team that continually goes above and beyond. Volunteers of all ages contribute their time and energy in a myriad of ways, and we strive to collaborate with them to find the most meaningful direction for their volunteer time.


SOUL RYEDERS would not exist without the generosity of people willing to share their resources in order to help our clients and caregivers. Many donors have been touched by cancer, either directly or indirectly. Our unique and personalized services make giving to SOUL RYEDERS a very tangible investment. Donors not only help others but experience personal fulfillment knowing what a difference they are making in our greater community.

Meet Jennifer Leventhal

Caregiver to her daughter Danielle

In reflecting on my initial connection with SOUL RYEDERS, I have to say I am pretty sure it was serendipity. When our family moved from Chappaqua to Rye in 2018, my then 24 year old daughter Danielle was in remission from a rare form of cancer. I was looking for ways to become part of the community and heard about SOUL RYEDERS, so I reached out to volunteer. Just a few months later, Danielle’s cancer returned and the prognosis was dire. I realized that she (as a patient) and I (as a caregiver) needed support. Being a primary caregiver for a young adult child was challenging, complicated, and heartbreaking, but it was also an honor and I consider it to be the most important and loving role a person can embrace.

SOUL RYEDERS provided support to me in so many ways — from trained volunteers who listened and provided resources and ideas, to the care packages of homemade soups and craft projects that made the days a little bit easier, to programs with other caregivers to make sure we didn’t feel isolated.

I participated in a cooking class with other caregivers where we connected while learning to prepare delicious and nutritious new recipes. I joined the Grant Committee to take an active

role in helping SOUL RYEDERS support other cancer organiza tions who provide additional resources for the SOUL RYEDERS community. During the pandemic, my daughter and I participat ed in an online, personalized Facing Advanced Care Together (F.A.C.T.) program. Working with Stacy, the SOUL RYEDERS social worker, my daughter and I were able to focus on the most meaningful ways to face end-of-life fears. This had a significant impact on me and enabled me to have confidence that nothing was left unsaid and that my daughter’s wishes were honored.

If I could share any advice with another caregiver, it would be to realize that when you are providing care to a loved one with cancer, it is not the time to try to do everything yourself. Don’t be too proud to ask for help and be specific about what you need. Most people genuinely want to support you but they worry about being intrusive, so they will follow your lead and wait for you to ask. 

A Note About My Daughter Danielle:

Two charitable organizations added joy and meaning to the last years of Danielle’s life. First Descents provides life-changing outdoor adventures for young adults (ages 18 – 39) impacted by cancer and other serious health conditions. Danielle felt empowered to push herself beyond her diagnosis by “out living it” through outdoor adventures like ice climbing. SOUL RYEDERS taught her to accept the kindness and resources offered by incredible volunteers who support community members with cancer. In 2019, she introduced these two groups to one another, and they have collaborated since on programs to change the lives of other young adults battling cancer. Dreams played a major role in Danielle’s life and it was her dream to sprinkle joy through art and adventure to young adults dealing with cancer. This special connection is an integral part of Danielle’s Dreams and will continue to resonate with those she touched for many years to come.

Meet Denise Rodman

My experience of being a client of SOUL RYEDERS has been wonderful and everyone has been so welcoming and supportive. The programs and services offered at SOUL RYEDERS have been so helpful during my cancer experiences. I learned about SOUL RYEDERS from another cancer survivor who I had been taking a yoga class with. We exchanged cell numbers and began to text each other for support. I had shared with her that I had been having a difficult time finding support from other young cancer survivors since most groups I was attending had much older women. While that was fine, I was still looking to speak with younger women in the same stage of life as myself. She referred me to SOUL RYEDERS and I began to participate in the Young Survivors Support Group and their What’s App private chat used for communicating.

When I joined the SOUL RYEDERS community, I was at the tail end of my treatment. The What’s Next Support Group was exactly what I needed. Meeting with other survivors who were having similar questions and worries was very validating for me and helped me feel less alone in my thoughts. The women in the group, which is led by a SOUL RYEDERS professional social worker and facilitator, gave me the courage to express my fears and to look at my future with hope. They helped me see I was capable of overcoming any challenge put before me.

During the pandemic, I felt very isolated. Being immunocompromised really decreased my inner circle of support but having the SOUL RYEDERS online meetings and chats proved to be an important outlet to connect with others. Living in NYC, online support groups allowed me to join this community without traveling long distances and attend the various workshops offered. The presenters for the workshops are wonderful at sharing vital information on many topics that affect women going through cancer and have personally offered me valuable advice that I have implemented in my own life. One of the most memorable workshops was one focused on practical tips for a good night sleep which is something so many long for!

In the fall of 2021, I had the wonderful opportunity to attend the SOUL RYEDERS Good Vibes Only retreat led by First Descents, a nonprofit whose mission is to provide outdoor adventure for those impacted by cancer and a grantee of SOUL RYEDERS. I cannot express enough how life changing this weekend away

with other SOUL RYEDERS members was for me. This retreat gave me the space to reflect, share, listen and grow. Over this weekend, cancer survivors and their caregivers were able to take part in yoga, rock climbing, fireside chats, meditation, walks and a few other activities. From the picturesque views of the grounds we stayed on, to the delicious farm fresh meals we were served, I was nourished physically, mentally and spiritually. Cancer caused me to doubt myself and the cancer treatments and surgeries I endured took a toll on my body. This retreat empowered me and gave me the courage to start on a new career path.

I am now so honored to be able to support other women going through breast, ovarian and gynecological cancer at Support Connection as a Peer Counselor. SOUL RYEDERS gave me the support and assisted me to find the strength within to make that dream a reality. I am eternally grateful to the SOUL RYEDERS community for that.

Making a dream a reality

Healing with Yoga

Yoga and movement have been a part of my life for many years and both have helped me heal my mind, body and navigate life’s journey. When I was diagnosed with cancer, I was attending a yoga class at a local studio and when I was speaking with one of my instructors, she mentioned SOUL RYEDERS as a resource I should definitely look into for support. I am so grateful that she did!

My experience with SOUL RYEDERS has been a very uplifting one. I was looking for a local small support group, and not only did I find that with SOUL RYEDERS but I found so much more. From the very first phone call with my client navigator, I felt like I found the right place where I could get the support I needed. Her kindness and generosity of her time is something I will never forget. The variety of different offerings and many ways to be involved pre, during & post cancer appealed to me. I started with the “spa day” at Mondays with SOUL RYEDERS and continued to join their Yoga 4 Cancer and the Meditation & Conversation classes.

I was diagnosed with endometrial/cervical cancer before the pandemic, so I was able to actually participate in the in-person programs/classes with SOUL RYEDERS. Right when I finished my radiation treatments and was through surgery, the pandemic hit. I was very overwhelmed with life post-cancer, my small business and my family. I felt very fortunate to still have the support I needed as SOUL RYEDERS transitioned to online classes such as Y4C, Meditation & Conversation and the virtual

What’s Next Support group to navigate this complicated time.

There are many other ways to get involved and be part of the SOUL RYEDERS community. I participated in TieTheTownPink and delivered care packages with my older daughter. My younger daughter participated in the Kids Duo virtual online race to raise money for SOUL RYEDERS. This past spring, I was delighted to be able to attend the in-person gala honoring Sandy Samberg and celebrating the organization’s 15 year anniversary. It was wonderful to see how many people SOUL RYEDERS has touched!

My experience with SOUL RYEDERS has impacted me in many positive ways and I enjoy sharing that with people from my oncology team, fellow yogis, and with family/friends far and wide. Some of my friends going through cancer in different cities wish there was something like this program in their area. I feel lucky to have had this in my community.

I was grateful to have the support while I went through cancer, but also very appreciative to have the support post cancer. I was inspired by different ways that helped me heal, one being Yoga 4 Cancer. After the pandemic, I decided to sell my small business, get my yoga certification followed by my Yoga 4 Cancer certification. It has been an honor to now serve as a substitute instructor for the Y4C classes at SOUL RYEDERS! I hope this helps to give back a little bit to an organization that has supported me in many ways.

Adrian Deen

When my wife April was diagnosed with ovarian cancer in 2016, we were introduced to SOUL RYEDERS through a Yoga 4 Cancer (Y4C) class. April, myself and our 2 year old twins Alton and Elan had moved to Rye only 6 months prior to April’s diagnosis and were just familiarizing ourselves with this new area. In a brief moment, when we received the news about her cancer, our world changed. Y4C was recommended to April and after attending a few sessions, there was an immediate positive impact and she was taken under the wings of the SOUL RYEDERS’ angels. The next day after the Y4C class, Sandy Samberg arrived at our home with a “Big Batch” home cooked meal made by some very talented volunteer chefs. The personal touch and support for all of us was very special. April attended Mondays with SOUL RYEDERS for massages and wig fittings and the support kept coming, not only for April but for our whole family.

After April passed, I knew that I wanted to remain connected to SOUL RYEDERS knowing firsthand the impact the organization has on the lives of families impacted by cancer. They were instrumental in my wife’s well-being during her illness especially in her final days and it was important to me to find ways to contribute to SOUL RYEDERS’s long term goals and mission.

Volunteering is something I have always found very rewarding so I was thrilled to jump in and get involved. I have been a part of fundraising efforts such as the annual Ray’s Polar Plunge and created and ran in my own half marathons, with each event raising money for SOUL RYEDERS. I am now proud to share that I’ve been working together with the Leadership Team and a few friends on creating a race event with SOUL RYEDERS to connect people in the local community and beyond in a meaningful way to be active and support an important mission!

The TieTheTownPink campaign takes place in early October and volunteers sign up to deliver pink ribbons to those that have purchased them. This is one of my favorite family volunteer opportunities and it is a great way to get both my children involved as well! Families came out to greet us as we adorned their homes with the ribbons and let us know how thrilled they were to display their support for SOUL RYEDERS.

I also enjoy being able to provide some strategic input on the business side of the organization by being part of the Grant Committee as the liaison to Gilda’s Club and I joined the Giving Circle; a critical group of donors united to ensure the financial support and longevity that SOUL RYEDERS needs.

When I think about the volunteer opportunity that resonates with me most, top of mind would be serving as a member of the SOUL RYEDERS Board of Directors. It is quite rewarding to be a part of this group of insightful colleagues that play an essential leadership function in shaping this organization’s success and ensuring the team remains focused on its mission and goals.

The impact this organization has on its clients is immeasurable and I have witnessed it firsthand. SOUL RYEDERS was there for my family in our time of need and giving back always feels good. I am thrilled to remain connected to SOUL RYEDERS in a variety of ways that will help support other families whose lives are impacted by cancer.

Philanthropy: “giving gifts of time, talent and treasure to help make life better for other people”

This year we were moved by the variety of new philanthropic gestures. We felt compelled to share a few of these meaningful contributions from those in our community who went above and beyond. Although all three organizations connected with us in different manners, they shared one common thread, the enthusiasm and capacity to make an impact for our programs.

The Campione Memorial

The Campione Memorial is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to funding initiatives that help those battling cancer and their families and encourages preventative care and a healthy lifestyle in memory of an inspirational woman, Virginia Campione. Their funds are derived completely from an annual dinner attended by family and old and new friends who are accustomed to “very personalized and specific uses of their contributions.” The Memorial Fundraiser proceeds go toward a scholarship and the scope has also been expanded to include an organization with a breast cancer related initiative.

New Rochelle Fire and Police Departments

In October 2021, the New Rochelle Fire Department and the New Rochelle Police Department held their annual charity softball game fundraiser for breast cancer awareness month. We were so honored to be chosen as the recipient of the proceeds of the event!

The Wooden Spoon restaurant in New Rochelle provided the food and drinks for the event and all proceeds were generously given back to the departments for donation. During the game, they sold t-shirts, had a 50/50 raffle and also had a Facebook fundraiser. The event drew a great crowd for an amazing day of fun watching these two organizations play their hearts out on that softball field. SOUL RYEDERS was presented a check for $5,680 on the steps of the New Rochelle City Hall and we are so grateful for their benevolence.

Both organizations love our mission to support anyone with any type of cancer and expressed interest in continuing their support of SOUL RYEDERS!

The Shama Foundation

The family reached out to SOUL RYEDERS to inquire about our organization, see if we might be a good recipient and learn about how the funds would be used. After speaking with them and sharing the details about our personalized services, they were very impressed and loved the idea that the funds would go directly toward our care packages, our Wig Exchange supply bags and our SOUL Lifting kits, all given to our clients in need.

The pandemic created a huge challenge for hosting their annual dinner party so they switched to a virtual format for their fundraising efforts. In February 2022, they held a virtual event that was filled with exciting activities such as Radio Bingo, a standup comedian act and a Super Bowl pool. Though different from their traditional dinner event, it was a huge success and $3,000 was raised for SOUL RYEDERS! We used it to load up our various client bags with lots of useful and comforting items that help make them feel supported while going through their cancer treatments.

The Shama Foundation’s mission is to provide support to charitable organizations, as well as, individual community members affected by various chronic illnesses, diseases, and disorders. In March 2021, they held their first fundraising event to, in their words, “Help Shred Cancer.” It was a day filled with private skiing and snowboarding at New York’s beautiful Plattekill Mountain. The net proceeds of this event were donated to SOUL RYEDERS in memory of Jennifer Healy, the sister of a Shama Foundation member. Jennifer passed away at the age of 48 after a twenty-month long battle with metastatic breast cancer. SOUL RYEDERS was incredibly honored to be the recipient of $8,000 from the Shred Cancer event and the funds will be used to help continue our mission of supporting anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis.

436 volunteers provided 1775 volunteer engagement hours You helped us stay connected to those we serve in so many impactful ways: 10 Held 8 client workshops with over 80 participants and developed On-Demand classes for easy, virtual anytime access.

On April 30th, supporters from our community and beyond came to celebrate 15 years of SOUL RYEDERS and honor Sandy Samberg. Sandy’s vision and fortitude for building SOUL RYEDERS into the organization it is today will always be remembered and her dedication continues as she remains an active Board Member, volunteer and donor.

Billy Miller, President of the SOUL RYEDERS Board of Directors honored Sandy’s work by stating, “A hero is someone who not only makes the ordinary seem extraordinary, but knows how and when to make the extraordinary look ordinary. In life, a cancer diagnosis is an extraordinary event to both the patient and their family. Through SOUL RYEDERS, Sandy is able to make that extraordinary moment seem manageable and face it with hope and dignity. And for that, she will always be a hero to countless clients and families touched by SOUL RYEDERS and its programs.”

Peer Support Initiative Launch

There is a demand for addressing the high unmet psychosocial needs of those affected by cancer. The Peer Support Initiative will enhance each of our existing programs and grow our circle of support through formal, supervised training of our community of cancer survivors to become peer mentors for our clients. Thank you to all those who contributed to help launch this critical initiative!

SOUL RYEDERS helps thousands of people each year through its Grant Program. Grants are awarded to cancer-related organizations for specific initiatives that improve the quality of life for families affected by all types of cancer. The grantees and initiatives are chosen by our Grant Committee and Board of Directors to complement our own programs and provide important, often essential, services needed for the individuals we serve.

Our volunteers truly are the brick that built us. Without them, we would not be able to provide our services to those in our community affected by cancer. SOUL RYEDERS is a volunteerdriven organization and we are incredibly thankful for the countless hours and dedication of every individual as well as groups and teams of people who share their time and talent with us. We have volunteers of all ages and many who get involved in a variety of ways to support our organization and all those we serve. Groups are reflected in the InKind section
