From Our Hearts attends Beacon of Hope’s Wellness Committee Meeting.
From Our Hearts, as a member of the Beacon of Hope’s Wellness Committee, attended a Cancer Coalition Outreach meeting at St John’s Episcopal Church at 771 Stringfellow Rd, St. James City on July 18, 2017. All local organizations and members of the community were invited to attend this session where we introduced islanders to many of the free or low cost services available to those facing cancer. In addition to sharing information about these available services, the Beacon of Hope’s Wellness Committee is building a resource guide so island residents will know where to go when in need either due to health or non health related issues. This meeting was a beginning to build that directory.
