While the pandemic has affected everyone, young and old, those living with cancer have been particularly impacted. Wellness House has provided a constant source of support for the thousands of patients who rely on the cancer resource center.
“Coping with the effects of cancer has not taken a back seat to COVID-19 for the patients and families Wellness House serves,” said Deb Kwiatt, marketing communications manager at Wellness House. “They need Wellness House even more now and we need the community to help us be there for them.”
In March, at the onset of the pandemic, Wellness House quickly transitioned all in-person programming to an online format to ensure the nonprofit’s patients and families would receive uninterrupted support. According to Kwiatt, since March 16, participants have made 22,500 visits to Wellness House’s online programs.
