Partnering with Wellness House

We’re thrilled to partner with veteran cancer support organization, Wellness House, to bring additional programming to our Cancer Resource Center. For the past 28 years, Wellness House has provided a variety of programs to encourage, educate, and emotionally support people with cancer and their families-- all at no cost to participants. Thanks to our collaboration with Wellness House, Lemons of Love has been able to offer Tuesday evening yoga (ongoing), a Wellness + Cancer series, Expressive Arts, and IgniteHope candle making. Please check our calendar for upcoming Wellness House programs at the Lemons of Love Cancer Resource Center.
