Haverhill-based Sailing Heals was founded in July 2011 by Trisha Boisvert and her twin sister, Michele Gallagher, of New York. Its mission is to take cancer patients — at any stage of their disease or remission — and their caretakers out on the water for half a day of sailing and respite. The sail is sometimes followed by a lunch or waterside picnic.
