The mission of Cape Wellness Collaborative is to provide free-of-charge integrative wellness therapies to anyone in our community facing cancer. Since November 2015, CWC has served more than 900 people, and since August 2019, distributed more than 1,600 meals. We are so humbled by your support and are more inspired than ever to continue this important work.
Approximately 1,400 people are diagnosed with cancer each year on Cape Cod. Many of them will seek integrative therapies to manage pain and nausea, reduce anxiety and increase well-being during their illness. But most of these therapies – acupuncture, massage, energy work, yoga, nutritional counseling and more — are not covered by insurance. CWC connects people facing cancer directly with local practitioners who provide these therapies, and we cover the cost.
HOW IT WORKS
Cape Wellness Collaborative serves people on the Cape & Islands who have a cancer diagnosis and are undergoing or recovering from cancer treatments, such as radiation or chemotherapy. We also serve patients who are receiving cancer-related care.
Approved applicants will receive a Cape Wellness Card with an initial value of $250, which can be used with any of CWC’s participating practitioners.
Simplicity is our goal. No billing, no redundancy, no headaches –people facing cancer are already going through enough. The CWC philosophy can be replicated anywhere.
It’s simple and straightforward, and we’re happy to share our model to see people with cancer access the wellness therapies they deserve!
