Whale always be there for you Alison.
We started this walk to honor Brenda Collins-Szczepkowski and support Terri Robinson-Janecko. Brenda volunteered at Wellness house as a massage therapist before deciding to use the services they provide. Sadly Brenda passed away in March of 2012. Brenda was our beautiful and generous Canadian friend. We miss her laugh and compassionate spirit.
Terri is a cancer survivor who was able to get help and answers at Wellness house. We honor Terri's mother Shirley Robinson who lost her battle with cancer in December 2015. She was a wonderful, kind woman who always had a beautiful smile to greet you. This year we walk to support Alison Vorreyer who is winning her fight with cervical cancer.
This walk is our way of remembering the people in our lives we lost and to give encouragement to our friends and family who are surviving their bout with cancer.
Cancer can feel 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. They aren’t located in a hospital or an office building. Rather, they are in a warm, friendly home in a neighborhood where you will find caring people with the expertise and eagerness to help. Their hope is that people will feel less alone, more informed, and more empowered to take on the challenge of facing cancer.
With support groups, exercise and nutrition classes, social events, and much, much more, Wellness House is 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.
This cause is very important to me, and I hope you will join me by making a donation.
