Remembering Eileen Grossman, CWC Founder
It is with great sadness that I have to share the news with you of the passing of Cancer Wellness Connection’s founder Eileen Grossman. It is hard to find words to describe the magnitude of Eileen’s impact on our community. I always thought of her as a force of nature, full of boundless energy that she channeled into visionary and innovative ideas. Eileen could--and would--move mountains in pursuit of her missions. She committed her energy and talents to making life in our community better.
Eileen recognized how isolating cancer treatment can be for both patients and their families. Long hours in the infusion chair can be scary, if not just plain boring. From that, her vision for a program that became Cancer Wellness Connections was born. Through Eileen’s leadership and counsel, Cancer Wellness Connections has been able to--and will continue to--enrich the lives of so many, especially people receiving outpatient infusions for cancer and chronic illnesses. We will redouble our efforts to continue to achieve the dream that she worked so hard to create, a dream she so passionately pursued for the benefit of our community.
Fierce in her love of her family, her friends and a good game of bridge, Eileen lived an extraordinary life. She leaves us with a great void, but a deep sense of thankfulness for all that she brought to our lives.
We will miss her but never forget her.
Cancer Wellness Connections, President

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.
