The mission of Wellness Place is to provide information and compassionate support to individuals and their families dealing with cancer.
Read about Wellness Place in the Wenatchee World:
Carl Kjobech, Founder and President
Dr. Kjobech worked as a hematologist and oncologist from 1969-2002 at the Wenatchee Valley Medical Center.
"In 1999, I moved from the physician's seat to the patient's chair when I was told I had prostate cancer. As a result, in November of that year, I had a prostatectomy. I, unfortunately, was familiar with the disease since my father had died of cancer of the prostate. He had had a late diagnosis because of failure to have timely exams and the less accurate tests available 20 years ago.
Because of my professional and personal experience with cancer, I see how the patient's needs at the time of diagnosis and thereafter go beyond formal medical support. These needs can best be met by a not-for-profit, volunteer organization.
Wellness Place provides information and compassionate support for any patient diagnosed with a life-threatening illness.
There are very few individuals who are not touched by cancer personally or in their family and Wellness Place is a valuable asset to our community."
