Fundraising Honor Roll

No matter how someone has been affected by cancer — maybe they've been diagnosed, have a family member who’s living with cancer, or are a caregiver — they're welcome at Wellness House. People with cancer and their loved ones receive education, support and guidance from the oncology professionals and participants throughout their journey with cancer and beyond.

You can't put a price on what Wellness House provides. So we don't. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations like you that provide gifts to Wellness House, there's absolutely no charge for all programs and services.

Cancer has heavily affected my, my family's, and my friend's lives. My family has been participating in the Walk for Wellness starting in 2010 when my mom was going through cancer treatment. After she passed away in 2011, my family continued to participate in Wellness House events and the annual Walk for Wellness. There were a few years when the timing of the event unfortunately did not work for myself to participate in, however, when my dad was diagnosed with cancer in 2017, I made participating in the event a priority once again. This will be my second year participating in the virtual event, as I am currently living and working in Guangzhou, China. My team will consist of a combination of my China "family" and friends, as well as family members who are still living in the Hinsdale area. Every year I look forward to this event, not only in remembrance of my mom and in honor of my dad (who is 4 years in remission!), but to contribute to such a wonderful cause so close to my heart.

I am participating in the Walk for Wellness House because I know how important support and community is for people impacted by cancer, and I want to ensure their access to the life-changing programs and services at Wellness House.

I hope you will join me by making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goals, but more importantly to help people affected by cancer in our community.

Thank you!
