0001Judy Williams has enjoyed a life-long love of the water, whether canoeing in the Boundary Waters or taking a float trip down the Zumbro River. The water has soothed her soul, calmed her mind and helped heal her body.

    So when Williams was diagnosed this past December with breast cancer for the second time and her ailing daughter’s own health worsened, she found it more difficult to make her way to the water—just when she needed it most.

    But now, thanks to the Healing Waters Project, the water has come to her. In late July, Mike Otte, owner of Whitewater Gardens in St. Charles, and a volunteer crew constructed a pondless waterfall in the backyard of Williams’s Rochester home.

Even the most skilled adults may experience frustration and feelings of failure.
