Tributes and Memorials
The Center is ever grateful for the many tribute and memorial gifts we receive each year. These gifts impactfully contribute to our program budget and are a unique and meaningful way to honor or remember a loved one or friend, and support the Center’s vitally needed programs and services.
Tribute cards are a meaningful way to commemorate special occasions or memorialize the passing of a loved one. When your gift is received, the Center will send a beautiful card to the person you designated to inform them of your thoughtful donation. The gift amount is confidential; we only acknowledge the sentiment.
Designating the Center as the choice for charitable contributions through a loved one’s obituary creates a living memorial for that person. In addition, this public notification helps create greater awareness of the Cancer Wellness Center as a resource for others living with cancer. The name of your loved one will be added to the memorial plaque permanently displayed in the Center.
The Center is pleased to provide a beautiful, meaningful and permanent way for you to memorialize or honor a loved one. The commissioned a grapevine sculpture is prominently displayed at the Center. It continues to grow as support for the Center grows. Leaves in different colors and sizes, and grapes that may contain up to 10 names, are available for inscription.
The Center continues its Buy-A-Brick project. In 1996, the Center started this brick campaign as a way to beautify the entrance and honor and remember loved ones and supporters of the Center. Every day, those who walk through our doors are greeted by the names of those who have take the journey before them.
