The 18th Annual Survivors at the Summit sponsored by the Cancer Wellness House is Saturday, August 2, 2014. The Cancer Wellness House Cancer Wellness House was established as non-profit organization in 1997 in response to the high trends of persons diagnosed and burdened with cancer. The mission of Cancer Wellness House is to support those living with cancer and their families in a home-like setting and 100% of the proceeds from this event will go to the Cancer Wellness House.
