CANCER WELLNESS CONNECTIONS

It's about Wellness...

Cancer Wellness Connections delivers free services to more than 15,000 people each year at five different Rochester infusion centers. A team of dedicated, passionate volunteers provides these activities and “bright moments” to help patients have a more positive experience and find wellness even while battling cancer.

Connecting with people.  Encouraging positive attitudes.  Delivering diversionary activities.  All are at the heart of an organization known as Cancer Wellness Connections

When battling cancer through chemotherapy, many people experience unpleasant side effects and face a treatment program that is emotionally, mentally and physically taxing.  The founders of Cancer Wellness Connections – Dr. Cynthia Angel, Dr. Brent DuBeshter and Eileen Grossman, recognized the importance of providing diversionary activities to help people undergoing these treatments.
