Welcome to Team Morrison!
Kim, Pete, Ellie, Andy, Ben, Mary Kate, Abby and Nate
For the past 5 years, I have been a Wellness House volunteer at The Courtyard in Hinsdale. If you haven’t shopped there, stop in and say hi. I work on Tuesdays. I always thought I understood our mission: a very fun consignment and donation shop benefiting Wellness House helping people living with cancer. In my wildest dreams, I never imagined myself needing the services of Wellness House. Now I do.
On December 1st, I was diagnosed with breast cancer. It was 25 days before Christmas and 60 days before my son’s wedding in January. There is never a good time for cancer, but obviously, if I could, I would have chosen a different month! I had all the kids on lockdown with this information: not one word before the wedding. I wanted all joy and happiness to shine on my son and daughter-in-law on their special day. They all complied.
During this very difficult and confusing period, Wellness House walked by my side. They offered informational, emotional, educational and physical support. And gently held my hand. I will be forever grateful. My journey has just begun. The support Wellness House provides me and my family cannot be measured. Suffice it to say, when I walk through the doors of Wellness House, I DO feel better inside.
Wellness House has been doing this important work with families for more than 28 years and is able to provide critical support services at no cost thanks to many generous donors.
It is my turn to give back to Wellness House and I welcome this opportunity. So, I hope you will join me in my Walk For Wellness. I would love to see your smiling face, on Sunday, May 6th at 8am in Hinsdale. But if not, please consider making a donation with my expanding family, Pete, Ellie, Andy, Ben, Mary Kate, Abby and Nate to support Wellness House as Team Morrison!
Thank you and be well,
