Over 11 million people in the U.S. have been diagnosed with cancer and it is one of the five most costly medical conditions. This forces many patients to make decisions about their health care and cancer treatment based on finances not on what is best for their health," Dr. Richy Agajanian, M.D. of the Oncology Institute of Hope and Innovation.
WAWELA Cancer support offers financial assistance to cancer patients who are undergoing treatment and in need of immediate financial assistance.
All funding is provided by the donations of local business and our community. Please help spread the word by sharing our website and our mission with others.
Many times patients cancel much needed appointments due to lack of transportation. Without transportation or support many go hungry or lack the proper food and nutrition that is needed to help build their immune system during treatments
Many of our meet ups include healthy meal planning along with juicing of natural fruits and vegetables. A simple retreat or getaway is a great way to reconnect with nature and rebalance the body.
"Only 5–10% of all cancer cases can be attributed to genetic defects, whereas the remaining 90–95% have their roots in the environment and lifestyle. The lifestyle factors include cigarette smoking, diet (fried foods, red meat), alcohol, sun exposure, environmental pollutants, infections, stress, obesity, and physical inactivity. The evidence indicates that of all cancer-related deaths, almost 25–30% are due to tobacco, as many as 30–35% are linked to diet, about 15–20% are due to infections, and the remaining percentage are due to other factors like radiation, stress, physical activity, environmental pollutants etc.
Preparing nutritious drinks and meals
Providing transportation for the disabled
Providing emergency prescription refills so they never skip their treatment
Keeping the family together during cold winter days and during treatments.
Although we are not always able to provide temporary shelter there are times when funding is available and local business are willing to negotiate affordable offers, that we are able to cater to extreme cases such as being homeless while battling cancer.
Celebration of life and support.
WAWELA goes the extra mile in delivering hope. We want our donors to see where their donations are going so we host annual celebrations to honor and recognize men and women who are fighting to survive.
Sometime a simple hug sprinkled with love can go a long way, we also realize that a simple act of kindness goes even further.
