Melanie Bender (back row, center) celebrated her recent 8th birthday by collecting donations for Wellwood, in lieu of presents, from friends and family. Her gift to Wellwood of $1,000 was presented in honour of her grandfather, who has been on his own cancer journey

Wellwood is a community-based, non-profit organization based in Hamilton that provides information, supportive care programs and peer support to people who have received a diagnosis of cancer, their families and caregivers, and healthcare providers. Working with existing community agencies and cancer care providers, Wellwood aims to provide integrative supportive care.
