Welcome to Gia's Page
I went on a tour of Wellness House when my mom was diagnosd with Multiple Myeloma. I couldn't believe that such an amazing place existed. They offered exercise classes, guest speakers, art classes, counseling, healthy food prep and many other services to help patients and families cope with their situation. It is all FREE to the patient and family. I was shocked!
After the tour, although I was impressed, I wasn't ready to take advantage of what they offered. I think I was in denial. Also, having so much support from family, and friends, I actually felt guilty using these free services. I know others aren't as fortunate as me so I wanted them to have access to what was offered.
Two years after my moms stem cell transplant her cancer came back. I was devistated as I had prayed that she would be their first cure! I decided to make an appointment and talk to a counsler at Wellness House. I cried and cried and cried. And I cried some more. He let me cry and just listened. He understood how I felt. Talking to him was exactly what I needed at that time. When I woke up the next morning I felt better. Maybe I just needed to let it all out.
The services of The Wellness House helped me to move forward in my mom's journey.
