Lets' make a difference together

Mrs. Therese "Tess" Kearney
Hello Family & Friends,
So many of you know my story and my passion as it relates to helping those affected by/with cancer.
5 YEARS AGO, I was diagnosed with Brain Cancer. It came out of nowhere, no clues, no warnings… It changed my life completely. Having had major brain surgery, then, a massive hematoma that caused a brain bleed which then put me into rehab for many months, from memory loss, speech lost, and motor skill loss, the ability to care for myself was greatly altered. I needed support, family& friends, GOD and so much more.
You might be asking “Why am I telling you this”?
Being a person of faith, this was the one thing that didn’t change for me. I said from the very beginning…
“My cancer was a gift from GOD”. HE chose to give it to me and HE WILL USE IT FOR HIS PURPOSE to grow me in my faith life, to serve others and to be a walking testament of what GOD can do when you “Let go and let GOD” provide for you.
Cancer does not discriminate- male, female, young or old, wealthy or poor… that being said, great strides are being made every day to find a cure (THANK GOD) but there is still much more work to be done which is why I’m sharing this with you.
Please let me introduce you to The Wellness House
The Wellness House opened in 1990 with a single mission: To better the lives of people living with cancer and the people close to them. Today, they offer a variety of programs and service from exercise classes, nutrition seminars, support groups, and so much more — that complement the treatment from doctors and specialists. It’s a whole-person approach to healing and it’s offered at no cost. They do this thru grants, volunteers, fundraisers, and donations from people like YOU!
