Protect The Family Jewels
We walk in memory of our good friend Brenda Collins Szczepkowski. She was a wonderful person and we miss her very much. Brenda was a volunteer massage therapist at Wellness House, and she continued to visit Wellness House for support after her own cancer diagnosis. Brenda also recommended Wellness House to our friend Terri Janecko who is now cancer free and a member of our team.
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.
Last year we walked to support our friend Alison Vorreyer who is winning her fight with cervical cancer.
This year we walk for Javier who had testicular cancer. Javier would like to remind all the men we love to Check the family jewels once a month.
We are proud to walk for all our friends and family who have been diagnosed with cancer and we're grateful a place like Wellness House exists to give them support.
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.
