Toxic Chemicals in Wellesley?  Come to April 5 Movie & Discussion

 

Toxins in Personal Care Products

 

Join us at this important April 5, 2017 movie screening at the Wellesley Library…

The Wellesley Cancer Prevention Project (http://wcpponline.org/ ) and the Wellesley Free Library are jointly sponsoring a FREE screening and discussion of  “STINK” – the award-winning documentary the chemical industry doesn’t want you to see!!

After giving his daughters new pajamas for Christmas  and noticing a “foul smell” when opening the packages, father and filmmaker Jon Whelan began what The Boston Globe called “a Michael Moore-type investigation” to expose toxic chemicals in common household goods (e.g. “Axe” body spray, perfumes, shampoos, clothing, etc).

Increases in incidence of diseases like cancer, reproductive problems, obesity and diabetes, parallels the growth hidden toxic chemicals in products in our homes!

A New Meal Delivery Service for Wellesley Cancer Patients Has Arrived !!

WCPP is different from many other cancer charities in our focus on prevention; the healthiest, cheapest, most effective cure for cancer is to not contract it in the first place.  Our diet has a very significant impact on our risk for many types of cancer, so WCPP will sponsor a series on eating well, for health. This new series is intended to increase the awareness and practice of healthy eating to help reduce cancer risk in the general population and to promote the health of those in treatment.  WCPP will lead this effort working with the help of volunteers from several non-profit groups in Wellesley and restaurants to deliver fresh and local meals to Wellesley residents currently undergoing treatment.

Beginning this May, you may order meals via telephone or in person at Susu Bakery and Captain Marden’s and a WCPP volunteer will provide a fee meal delivery service between the hours of 11:30 am-4:30 pm, Monday-Friday.  During the month of June, National Cancer Survivor Month, The Local will also provide this service with specials for cancer patients and their families and meal delivery from WCPP sponsored volunteers.

Please refer to menu items below and contact a WCPP volunteer to deliver your meal after you place your order using the volunteer schedule below.  If you should like to volunteer with Meals 2 Heal, please email info@wcpponline.org only 1-2 hours per week is required!

The Procedure for ordering is below:

  1. The cancer patient or their family or friends will place an order with the restaurant and request delivery of that order and give payment information.
  2. The restaurant will offer that delivery service via WCPP volunteers, such as yourself.
  3. The restaurant personnel will contact you on your contact number and let you know who the patient is, and their telephone number.
  4. Then you can contact the patient and let them know that you will be delivering their meal and get the address.
  5. The meal will have been paid for by whomever orders the meal, so there is no need for you to collect any money.
The expectation is that the order will be delivered within an hour or less to the patient preferably within 30-40 minutes unless they have otherwise requested.
