Dear Friends & Family,
I recently had my 5-year appointment/exam with my oncologist and I am relieved and pleased to tell you that I am cancer free!
I was diagnosed with breast cancer 5 years ago. I was fortunate – it was Stage 1A. I had surgery and went through 4 weeks of radiation therapy. Following surgery, my doctors recommended going to the Wellness House for exercise and it’s been one of the best things I’ve done in my life.
I always hated exercising, but the doctors told me that exercise is one of the best ways to prevent the cancer from returning. So, I bought exercise clothes & shoes. I met with my instructor & we mapped out an exercise plan to help me recover. As my strength improved, my programming changed from time to time to match it. It has been a Godsend for me as I struggled through the radiation treatments and the healing that took much longer than I could have anticipated. The conversations I have had while riding the stationary bikes have been valuable and I could share stories with many people who were walking my walk of treatment and healing. The instructors are amazing. They get to know their students and offer accommodations to suit their specific needs/disabilities/health issues.
The Wellness House has been doing this important work for more than 30 years. They can offer these critical services at no cost to those affected by cancer thanks to generous support from donors.
The 2022 Walk is back LIVE and in-person! We are excited to be together and celebrate the community’s steadfast support of the Wellness House at our annual Walk for Wellness House on Sunday, May 1, 2022. You can choose to do a 3K Walk, a 5K Fun Run or a 5K Timed Run. You can also choose to “Walk Your Way” and the place, time and distance of your walk is completely up to you.
Please join us in celebration of the spirit of community and support that keeps us going every day. To donate online, you can do so here: walk.wellnesshouse.org (My team is the Wellness Warriors).
Whatever you can give will help – it all adds up! I greatly appreciate your support and will keep you posted on my progress. Thank you for your support.
P.S. Checks can be made payable to: Wellness House 131 N. County Line Road Hinsdale, IL 60521 Please include a note with my name so they know your donation is to support my efforts.
Thank You. Becky Semeyn
