Wellness House Participant

“The people I’ve met at Wellness House, from the staff to the other participants, became my family. They gave me courage and hope that I could survive cancer.” In addition to Spanish-speaking support groups and counseling. I didn’t feel alone anymore because I was with my Wellness House family.”

“Las personas que conocí en Wellness House, desde el personal hasta los demás participantes, se convirtieron en mi familiar. Me dieron valor y esperanza de poder sobrevivir al cáncer”. Además de grupos de apoyo y asesoramiento de habla hispana. Ya no me sentía sola porque estaba con mi familia de Wellness House”. – Alejandra
