Our Board

Meet our Board of Directors and Foundation Board of Directors. We are grateful for these talented, committed and generous volunteer leaders who share their time, knowledge and resources so Wellness House can be the best it can be, helping those living with cancer feel better inside.

The Wellness House Foundation, which oversees our endowment, was formed in 2000 to help secure the financial sustainability of Wellness House.
