“LivingWell does an incredible job of supporting patients and their families at every stage of their cancer journey, from diagnosis to treatment to survival,” said John D. Abad, MD, surgical oncologist at Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center in Warrenville. “The proximity of these resources to our Warrenville patients is a wonderful addition to our campus and gives them greater access to LivingWell’s offerings.”
Also on May 2nd, the original LivingWell location at 442 Williamsburg Ave. reopened to the public in Geneva and resumed some in-person programs suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.
When LivingWell is fully staffed with volunteers and social distancing is no longer an issue, nutrition classes, the wig boutique and medical/educational presentations will be available as hybrid (in-person and virtual) offerings.
All programs and services are provided free of charge. Learn more at livingwellcrc.org.
