Please join me in raising $1,000.00 for the 2019 Walk for Wellness House Fundraiser
Dear Family and Friends,
As many of you may know, I was diagonised with Carcinoid Cancer in 2009.
I'm participating in the 2019 Walk for Wellness House for two reasons:
1. In memory of my cousin Carrie Yancey who passed from Carcinoid Cancer in 2014.
2. In May of 2009, I was diagnosed with Carcinoid Cancer. After 10 years, the Carcinoid Cancer has spread to my liver and kidney. I am currently taking Lanreotide shots once a month to help slow the growth of the Carcinoid Cancer. Having any type of cancer is draining on your body, mind and spirit. The programs and support groups (Carcinoid Cancer) offered at Wellness House, have helped me with the importance of exercise, nutrition, and stress. The Carcinoid Cancer support group provides information on doctors who specialize in Carcinoid Cancer treatments, medications, and nutrition. Since attending the Wellness House, staff and volunteers have made this journey possible, due to the respect, love, and care through education given by the staff.
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.
