The Wellness Community, Northern Jersey Shore - The Diney Goldsmith Center is the result of a collaboration between Ilene Winters, who lost her mother Cissie to cancer, and Barry Goldsmith, who lost his wife Diney to cancer. Both Ilene and Barry realized that there was nowhere for people affected by cancer to go in our area for the support, education, and hope that they vitally needed. Here at The Wellness Community, we provide that - and more !
The quest to open The Wellness Community started in late December of 2004 and was a real community effort. So many residents of Monmouth and Ocean counties gave their money, time, and energy to help see The Wellness Community open on May 15, 2007. Just prior to opening, Jan Tryba joined the team as Program Director and in August Lori Schnieder joined us as Office Administrator.
We see an average of 20 new people each month. These are either people that have cancer, or they are a family member, caregiver, or friend of someone with cancer. Our programs continue to grow and expand as we meet the needs of the participants that attend them.
We invite you to be one of the 20 new people we see each month.
Please stop in anytime for a tour of our facility and see how The Wellness Community might help you regain control, reduce isolation, and restore hope.
