JDSA Supports Wellness Place

This October, JDSA is conducting a variety of fundraising efforts to support Wellness Place. Among the efforts are a raffle, penny wars, and a silent auction. The money raised is expected to be about $1,500 and will go directly toward helping breast cancer patients.

Throughout the year, JDSA chooses influential community-supported efforts. For Breast Cancer Awareness Month we opted to go with the wellness center. 

Wellness Place provides support groups to patients and caregivers, as well as provide gas and/or gas cards, and transportation to those who need it. They also provide nutritional supplements, groceries / gift cards, pharmaceutical assistants, help with childcare expenses, haircuts and wigs.

In 2014, JDSA supported mammogram screens for those in need, but without the means to afford the medical care.
