Welcome to My Personal Page


My husband passed away in November 2018 from metastatic thymic carcinoma. Since November, three friends have passed away because of cancer, and two more are currently receiving cancer treatments. When looking for a support group to help with my grief, I found the drop-in Bereavement Group at the Wellness House. I have found support and encouragement in a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The staff are knowledgeable and compassionate. The fellow participants are friendly, caring and eager to connect with each other. Sharing grief with others who know and understand what I’m going through, has been very helpful to me as I process and adjust to my new normal. Participating in this weekly group has inspired me to join the Walk for Wellness House. Cancer touches the lives of so many people. Participating in this walk will help others benefit from the variety of programs offered at the Wellness House.
I would like to honor my Mom, Barb and friend and coworker, Diane as they fight cancer, and remember the lives of Dale (my husband), Rick (my friend's husband), Cherri  (my cousin) and Jill (a good friend) at the Walk for Wellness House.
I invite you to join me at the 3K walk ($30 registration fee), or make a donation of any amount to my team, go to walk.wellnesshouse.org and register on my personal page - Betsy Martin team EMPOWER LIFE



No matter how someone has been affected by cancer — maybe they've been diagnosed, have a family member who’s living with cancer, or are a caregiver — you're welcome at Wellness House. Learn new skills, get information, and join others when you take classes, practice healthful living, reduce stress, and more. All Wellness House programs and services are led by experts, designed to prepare and empower you to fully live life with cancer. All at no cost to you.

Everything Wellness House does is to prepare and empower people to fully live life with cancer and beyond.

Wellness House experts, specialists and programs focus on individual needs of people through every step of cancer - before, during and after treatment.

The welcoming, encouraging feeling starts the moment you walk into one of the programs. Wellness House is designed to give you back the strength, community and control that cancer can take away.


You can't put a price on what Wellness House provides. So we don't. Thanks to the generosity of individuals, foundations and corporations that provide gifts to Wellness House, there's absolutely no charge for all programs and services.

I hope you will join me by making a donation to help me reach my fundraising goals but more importantly to support help people in our community and around Chicagoland fully live life with cancer and beyond.

Thank you!
