A Night in Casablanca with Wellness Place

In today’s feature, we’re taking a closer look at Wellness Place in Palatine, a resource used by many area residents facing cancer and those who care for them.

The Wellness Place Women’s Auxiliary volunteers have been busy planning a 1940’s themed gala called A Night in Casablanca…Your Passport to Morocco. It’s coming up on the evening of Saturday, August 25that the Chicago Symphony Center, 220 S. Michigan Avenue.

The elegant fundraising event includes dinner, live auction, music and dancing.  Tickets cost $250 and the organizers hope to raise over $100,000 for Wellness Place programs and services.  Visit WellnessPlace.org to purchase tickets and help make a big difference in the lives of local families facing cancer.

To get a better feel for how Wellness Place helps people through a devastating cancer diagnosis, we had a conversation with the organization’s Executive Director, Pam Reiss.  Pam is celebrating a major milestone this month.  Exactly ten years ago, in July of 2002, she had her final radiation treatment for breast cancer.  When Pam was undergoing cancer treatment, she didn’t know about the resources available at Wellness Place.  Today, it is her mission to spread the word about Wellness Place so others have an easier time when they’re told they have cancer.

“You’re kind of blindsided at age 35 with a cancer diagnosis.  You’re suddenly faced with the potential of your own mortality and it’s a little unnerving.”

“I had a good prognosis, but I had a horrible time with treatment. It was six months of about the worst time in my life. Had I known about Wellness Place, I could have prevented or better managed some of the side effects that were the worst of all.”
