Wellness House Board of Directors Chair Lauren Haarlow has had a front-row seat to the Hinsdale-based nonprofit’s evolution since its early years helping those with cancer live and thrive.
Her father-in-law, Bill Haarlow, was instrumental in the organization’s founding in 1990, and Lauren Haarlow cherishes contributing to that legacy.
“Wellness House was always part of what we did as a family,” she said.
Many families would undoubtedly attest to the vital role Wellness House has played on their cancer journeys over the last three decades. Haarlow credited quality programs and gifted staff as factors in achieving the milestone.
“I think we do a wonderful job helping (participants) navigate their treatment and providing them with the kind of friendship and camaraderie that they can’t really get from their family and friends,” she said.
