LivingWell Cancer Resource Center Opens Second Location in Warrenville

LivingWell Cancer Resource Center, part of Northwestern Medicine, will open a second location in Warrenville, Ill., on Monday, May 2, 2022. Located inside the Keystone Building at 4525 Weaver Parkway, LivingWell offers more than 100 free programs and services to support patients, families and caregivers impacted by cancer.

“We are so excited to expand our services beyond our current location in Geneva,” said Angela McCrum, director of the LivingWell Cancer Resource Center. “With proximity to the Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center and Proton Center, patients will have more convenient access to services like counseling, support groups and more.”

Programs and services will be available in the following formats:
· Individual and family counseling: in-person and virtual
· Support groups: in-person and virtual
· Touch therapies (massage, reflexology, reiki and facials): in-person
· Art classes: in-person and virtual
· Fitness and yoga classes: in-person and virtual
· Nutrition classes: virtual
· Medical and educational presentations: virtual
· Wig boutique: virtual

“LivingWell does an incredible job supporting patients and their families at every stage of their cancer journey, from diagnosis through treatment through survivorship,” said John D. Abad, MD, surgical oncologist at Northwestern Medicine Cancer Center in Warrenville. “Having these resources close to our patients in Warrenville is a wonderful addition to our campus and provides them with better access to LivingWell’s offerings.”

In addition, on May 2, 2022, the original LivingWell location at 442 Williamsburg Ave. in Geneva, Ill., will reopen to the public and resume some in-person programming that was suspended during the COVID-19 pandemic.

When LivingWell is fully staffed with volunteers and social distancing is no longer a concern, nutrition classes, the wig boutique and medical/educational presentations will be available as hybrid (in-person and virtual) offerings.

All programs and services are provided free of charge. Learn more at https://livingwellcrc.org/.
