For the first time, the Cancer Wellness Center will be presenting the “Impact Award” at our annual Better Together Benefit.
The award recognizes community leaders that have joined the Center in their important work – improving the emotional and physical well-being of people affected by cancer.
The CWC Impact Award honors an individual, couple, or organization that has made a deep impact on our community through their leadership, civic and philanthropic contributions to the Cancer Wellness Center.
We are proud to introduce our inaugural recipients: Dr. Bruce Brockstein and Dr. Dean Tsarwhas.
