ChemoWize exists to enable cancer patients better cope with, manage and recover from the physical challenges that chemotherapy brings. The many long-term side effects include peripheral neuropathy (loss of sensation in hands and feet), chronic fatigue, cognitive problems, learning disabilities, vision problems, heart and kidney issues, liver disease, and infertility and secondary cancers.
ChemoWize awards grants for goods and services, most of which are not covered by insurance, that help combat these side effects such as detoxification programs and equipment, exercise programs and equipment, massage, reflexology, optometry, acupuncture, homeopathic and nutritional practitioners and supplements.
ChemoWize is a non-profit organization that connects Partners in Health with patients in need of financial, physical and emotional support. As a 501(c)(3) organization your donations are tax deductible. Funds received are awarded to chemotherapy patients to help build their health support network, assist them in paying for adjunctive therapies and provide them with the tools they need to fully recover from chemotherapy treatments.
