What We Do
Connecting with people. Encouraging positive attitudes. Delivering diversionary activities. All are at the heart of the organization known as Cancer Wellness Connections. Although originally founded in 2006 as Cancer Wellness Spa, the mission of the group remains the same.
When battling cancer through chemotherapy, many people experience unpleasant side effects and face a treatment program that is emotionally, mentally, and physically taxing. The founders of Cancer Wellness Connections— Dr. Cynthia Angel, Dr. Brent DuBeshter, and Eileen Grossman, recognized the importance of providing diversionary activities to help the people undergoing these treatments.
New! Medved-Led Race Preparation Running Group
There is a new opportunity to join a like-minded local running group in order to prepare to run in Cancer Wellness Connection’s annual 5K fundraiser. We have partnered with Medved Running & Walking Outfitters to design our own training program that leads up to our race in September.
