“You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, ‘I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along.’ You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”

– Eleanor Roosevelt

Biographies of main members of the organization.

P.A.C.E. Group chose to use as its masthead the figure of Chiron, the Centaur, well known in Greek Mythology as having been assigned as the teacher, instructor of Asclepius, who became the Greek God of Healing and Father of Medicine.


The tale relates that the Sun God, Apollo, fell in love with Coronis, a mortal.  But once Coronis became pregnant, she married someone else.  This infuriated Apollo to the point where his sister, Artemis, shot Coronis with arrows and killed her.  But Apollo, feeling morose over this action,resolved to rescue and save the child.  He became invisible and rapidly pulled the child from Coronis’ belly.  Once in his arms, Apollo tookthe child to Mount Pelion in Thessaly.  Upon Apollo’s arrival, the infant was turned over to the gentle and wise Chiron, the Centaur, who was to care for him.  Chiron was the first to teach the young Asclepius the Science of Medicine and Pharmacology through finding and discovery of a variety of healing herbs to be used in a range of techniques.  


History has taught us how Asclepius healed so many diverse maladies of the time. One in particular stands out as what today we call mental and brain diseases such as Stroke.  He would place them in tepid water baths for a time, while also massaging the affected area to the sound of elective soft music.  This seemed to alleviate the caused dis-ease of the patient and many found themselves anew and able to lead productive lives.  Water has always been a form of repose to the brain and continues to be so to this day.


P.A.C.E. Group honors this teaching because it deems that it too will be teaching and instructing those in need about the various aspects of Medicine which can not only heal but also help them to lead prolific and valuable healthful lifestyles.  


For those who have a history of Stroke and Cardiovascular encounters, P.A.C.E. Group can provide motivationsupport, education, engender, generate, train, encourage, energize and assist those individuals  in recognizing the meaning of life and to thereby pursue and command a productive existence with true lifetime enjoyment.
