Tom Antonellis walks for Cancer support services

Join Us for HopeWalks on Sunday, October 1 at Newton-Wellesley Hospital – 2014 Washington Street, Newton, MA

What is HopeWalks? HopeWalks is a 3.5-mile

neighborhood walk to directly benefit cancer patients and their families by supporting the life-enhancing Integrative Support Services offered at the Vernon Cancer Center. These life-enhancing services help patients through treatment and optimize healing and comfort. We want to make these services available to everyone regardless of a patient’s ability to pay.  Visit Tom Antonellis’ page to learn more about his walk and to donate clicking here: http://giving.nwh.org/hopewalks/pfp?tab=0&frsid=6198

Why Tom is walking:

When cancer strikes you or someone you care about, it is like getting hit by a train. Everyone’s life gets turned about. The caring team at the Vernon Cancer Center (from the parking attendant to the front office staff that meet and greet to the medical and support services staff ) make all the comforting difference in the world.

The team has so much care and understanding to not just the patient but they focus on families as well.

Each year we have been involved, between walks I found out about another friend or loved one who was being treated at the Vernon Cancer Center. At least I could tell them from first-hand experience that they and their family were at the right place. This has me sharing with more people how the need for help in funding for support services is as important as research. No matter the prognosis patients and families need help living with cancer and the Vernon is there for them.

Share, give thanks and help others. Many days as I think of the fantastic team at Newton-Wellesley Hospital, I give thanks to them for helping so many people dealing with cancer as a new part of life and hope for a positive outcome for all.

Please help me and “Still a Team” support this very important part of cancer treatment for so many families.

Please join me and show your support.

Back To School Clean-Out

The Wayland Schools’ Green Team reminds you to recycle ALL textiles – while generating much needed PTO funds for all our schools. Wayland averages $150 per month – let’s double it! Donation bins are at each of our 5 schools and the town landfill.

In the United States, each person throws away about 70 pounds of clothing and textiles each year. Those items take up space in landfills or they get incinerated, creating toxic fumes. You can help by donating or recycling clothes, shoes, towels, sheets, stuffed animals, and other household textile items.

Annual Wayland Hockey Association Golf Tournament

The Annual WHA Golf Tournament will be held on Friday, September 29th at Wayland Country Club at 12pm with a 1:30pm shotgun start.

In addition to our usual schedule of events, we are excited to be featuring alumni tables and would like to span as many years as possible, so please spread the word among past players from the 1960s to 2017!

Registration will be open shortly so stay tuned!  We will be looking for foursomes, tee sponsors and raffle & auction items.

For more information, please contact Jen at jenbonner@verizon.net.

Overdue utilities accounted for 35% of the expenditures, rent 24% with the remainder covering a wide variety of bills including medical costs, food, and children’s’ items. The Wayland residents who were helped included elderly individuals with serious illnesses, single parents who were out of work, a severely disabled parent with small children, and a family who had taken in children who were at risk.

The WCF is staffed by five volunteers who cover all operating expenses. It receives no public funding.
