Welcome to My Personal Page
Cancer can be overwhelming, for patients and their families. It can be confusing and frightening. Fortunately, when it comes to living with cancer, Wellness House is there.
The welcoming, encouraging feeling starts the moment you walk in the door. Wellness House is not located in a hospital or an office building. Rather, Wellness House is a warm, friendly home in a neighborhood where you will find caring people with the expertise and eagerness to help. Wellness House programs are now also available in partner locations in other community settings.
Everything Wellness House does is to prepare and empower people to fully live life with cancer and beyond. Wellness House experts, specialists and programs focus on the individual needs of people through every step of cancer - before, during and after treatment. Wellness House programs use a psychosocial approach based on research, addressing the whole person - socially, emotionally, physically, spiritually and psychologically.
With support groups, exercise and nutrition classes, education events, and much, much more, Wellness House programs are designed to give back the strength, community, and control that cancer can take away. Since you can’t put a price on these things, they don’t either - there’s absolutely no charge for all of the programs and services that they offer.
Last year Wellness House provided services to over 3,000 individuals who made a total of 37,717 visits to Wellness House and its partner locations. Over the past 5 years, visits have increased over 40%. In January 2019, Wellness House started a partnership with Mile Square Clinic and the University of Illinois Chicago to provide a full range of services to cancer patients in this underserved area.
Cancer and Wellness House have touched the lives of many people. I hope you will consider participating in the Walk for Wellness and making a donation.
Thanks so much, Gaye and Barb.
