Candy's Place

Our Mission

As a cancer wellness and resource center, we work hard to provide support to cancer patients and their loved ones in a loving, safe and home-like environment.

Our Story

A Cancer Resource Center for Cancer Patients and their loved ones.

Candy’s Place was founded in memory of Candice Vincent-Mamary. As a mother, wife, daughter, sister, a renowned social worker in our community, and a friend to all, Candy brightened every room she entered and charmed everyone she met. Her bright eyes, warm smile and caring gaze captured the attention of everyone present. She had style and she had grace. When holding a conversation, she focused every ounce of attention on the person with whom she spoke. She made each person feel as though he or she was the most important person in the world, if only for a moment.

Making Strides Against Breast Cancer is a celebration of survivorship - an occasion to express hope and our shared determination to make this breast cancer's last century.

We believe that everyone with breast cancer should have support.

That's why the American Cancer Society is so determined to be here for the survivors, the patients, the caregivers, and the millions saved through early detection.

Help raise funds for groundbreaking breast cancer research, life-saving education, and critical patient services by walking in the American Cancer Society Making Strides Against Breast Cancer of Making Strides of Wyoming Valley.

Get ready to join more than one million volunteers nationwide. When you sign up, fundraise, and participate in one of our noncompetitive, three- to five-mile walks, you will be there to support every person affected by breast cancer.

Begin today! The sooner we start, the farther we'll go.
