“There are no words to fully express my gratitude for the JCC Cancer Wellness program, for you as the director of this program and for all the participants I met in the discussion group. It has helped me grow stronger physically and emotionally. When I entered the program I was so depressed, but slowly my strength and spirit started to return. I am learning acceptance of uncertainty and finding ways to make life meaningful again. For all these blessings, I am filled with gratitude.”
