With Gratitude, CWC Says Farewell

After thoughtful consideration and reflection, Cancer Wellness Connections has made the difficult decision to close down our program. Since its inception in 2007 by our visionary founders, Eileen Grossman, Dr. Cynthia Angel, and Dr. Brent DuBeshter, our mission has been to provide not only diversions but also tools to support individuals undergoing outpatient chemotherapy. Over the years, our staff, volunteers, and Care Partners have had the privilege of accompanying many of you on your cancer journey. The challenges brought forth by the COVID-19 pandemic necessitated a shift to virtual programs, but they ultimately couldn’t replace the in-person connections that were our core strength. It is with heavy heart that we announce the discontinuation of our programming. We are immensely grateful for the opportunity to have been a part of your lives and are sending our warmest wishes for your continued strength and resilience on your path ahead.
