Founder, Penny Cunningham
January of 2013 marks sixteen years since Penny's sister, Candy, passed away due to cancer. As Penny reflected over those years, she is very thankful for the many friends that she has made, the many sponsors that have come forward, and the many volunteers that have made our organization strong. But most of all, she is thankful for all the cancer patients that Candy's Place has been able to help.
With recent changes that have been implemented at the Center so that many more cancer patients can be reached, the mission has not and will not change. "Our vision helps us focus on the future," said Penny, "and that is to be the leading resource for non-medical cancer support and services to the Wyoming Valley region."
Candy's Place's hope is that you will continue to partner with us as we support and care for those who are in the battle of their lives.
