Our family has been supported by Wellness House in many ways - and we want to give back! Erin Blader (Tim's wife and Timmy and Marty's mother) attended Wellness House after her diagnosis and the boys continued to find support after she passed in 2013. Matt Gavin (Kate's husband and Clare's father) passed in 2013 soon after his diagnosis and Kate found support in her group at Wellness.
Now the five of us are a family (Tim and Kate married in July) and are Walking for Wellness House!
Please read more about Wellness House below and you'll see why our "team" (The Fab Five!) knows it as a very special place. :)
Getting a cancer diagnosis can be stressful for the patient, their family, and friends. They just want to feel better –– and that may be its own challenge.
That’s where Wellness House can help. They're here to meet those needs –– to listen, teach, guide, and empower. They take a psychosocial approach to healing, accounting for all aspects that impact how people affected by cancer are doing, beyond medical care. There’s no right or wrong, just what works for the patient, family and friends.
Wellness House has been doing this important work for more than 25 years. They are able to offer these critical services, at no cost to those affected by cancer, thanks to generous support from donors.
This cause is very important to us, and we hope you will join us by making a donation!
