Fashion designer Donna Karan has donated $850,000 to Beth Israel Medical Center for a year-long experiment of combining Eastern healing methods with traditional cancer treatments. "The Karan-Beth Israel project will have a celebrated donor turn a hospital into a testing ground for a trendy, medically controversial notion: that yoga, meditation and aromatherapy can enhance regimens of chemotherapy and radiation," reported The New York Times. Yoga teachers Rodney Yee and Colleen Saidman Yee will oversee the project, which begins in January. Anyone have success combining yoga with cancer treatments?
