The Wellness House

Psychosocial care can heal your whole self

Cancer reaches every aspect of your life. Beyond the medical, it touches on social, emotional, physical, spiritual, and psychological health for those diagnosed, caregivers, and loved ones. It’s thought more than 50% of people with cancer are affected by psychosocial distress, which affects these areas of well-being.

The National Cancer Institute (NCI) recognizes that psychosocial care can help people living with cancer by controlling symptoms and reducing pain and treatment side effects, while improving quality of life.

The Hephzibah Children's Association

Hephzibah is Oak Park’s oldest social service agency—founded in 1897 when a village resident named Mary Wessels opened her home to two young boys. A postcard addressed to a friend is the only remaining record of Hephzibah’s beginnings. It reads, “I have begun my work. I have two boys, ages six and seven.”

Angel Airlines For Cancer Patients

Angel Airlines For Cancer Patients (AACP) facilitates no-cost commercial airline tickets for needy cancer patients and their families.

Angel Airlines For Cancer Patients uses commercial airlines to provide charitable cancer patient travel.

Patients use the charitable transportation system to travel to and from distant specialized medical evaluations, diagnosis or treatments. Many patients and their families make multiple trips. Patients are asked to verify financial need and the patient’s primary physician will be asked to sign a form indicating that the travel is for essential and necessary medical care.

Patients may access help supported by AACP by calling 888-675-1405. Information specialists will talk with the patient and determine the exact travel need and then refer them to the best type of assistance.

Nationally, scores of cancer patients travel every month through these charitable or reduced-rate means – making it possible for them to get the best possible specialized care and the best chance for life. AACP assists patients traveling to medical institutions all over the United States.

Patients no longer need turn down the option for specialized care at some distant medical facility due to the lack of a financial means to travel for the treatments.
