Better Together Benefit

The Center is continually inspired by the commitment of its donors, working together to improve the lives of those living with cancer. The Better Together Benefit raises critical funds to ensure that we can continue to create and offer our unparalleled counseling, support, education, and wellness programs to all who seek our services – FREE OF CHARGE.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of our 2021 Better Together Benefit. We could not do our work without the generosity of our sponsors, donors, or supporters.

We invite you to watch and hear the stories of lives changed for the better because of YOU and your investment in the Center. Click here or below to watch the CWC 2021 Mission Video sharing the impact that the Center has on our participants.
