Welcome to My Personal Page
On May 3rd, 2020, we were supposed to gather at Wellness House in Hinsdale for the Annual Wellness House Walk. This is a favorite annual tradition for our family. Due to the challenging times we are facing with COVID-19, the walk has been postponed to June 28th, 2020 and has been moved to a Virtual Walk. What is a Virtual Walk? A walk on your own terms! We've all been finding creative ways to fill our time outside these past few weeks, here is another opportunity!
Why do I walk?
In past years, I walked for all people affected by cancer, maybe they've been diagnosed, have a family member who's living with cancer, or are a caregiver for someone with cancer.
This year is different. As we all find ourselves trying to navigate a new normal in this pandemic, I have heard so many say "this is so hard". I am going to walk this year and think about everyone affected by cancer and how this time for them is so much harder. They may be a patient going through treatment daily, living in fear of becoming exposed to the virus. They may be a patient recently diagnosed with treatment options delayed due to healthcare restrictions. They may be someone affected by cancer AND also recently lost their job due to COVID-19. They may be simply living with cancer or a cancer survivor and home alone without their usual support system by their side.
I am going to walk for Wellness House this year for their miraculous 36 hour turnaround they did in mid-March to offer ALL programs virtually. While the physical doors of the house are closed due to COVID-19, staff members of Wellness House are virtually connecting with so many virtually. Wellness House offers programs to all people affected by cancer, learning new skills, getting information, practicing healthy living, reducing stress and more.
I am going to walk for all healthcare workers caring for cancer patients in this challenging environment. Every day, our physicians, nurses and many other hospital staff members are risking their lives while caring for cancer patients every day. Thank you to all of our frontline heroes!
Wellness House offers all programs for FREE and needs the support of our community to do so. I hope you will register to walk this year and consider a donation to this impressive organization in our home town.
In honor of this year's 30th anniversary for Wellness House, I am setting a goal of walking at least 30 minutes each day between now and June 28th. On the morning of June 28th (Virtual Walk Date), our family will wear our Wellness House t-shirts and plan to walk together around our community, hoping to see many friends doing the same!
Wishing you all good health!
The Regnery Family
