We welcome, families and friends.

My name is Verna Richardson,
I am the owner and visionary of the
IDA MAE CENTER Cancer Wellness in Jacksonville NC 28546
910-353-6350.

Robert Richardson Sr. had fought a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer. He is my father In-law and was such a wonderful strong willed man.

I love him so much. He has won the battle and is a survivor in heaven. I am willing to continue to fight this battle of cancer with our wellness therapy program.

I have three wishes:

The first is that cancer as a disease will be cured during my lifetime. The second is that it will be prevented. While these may not be possible, my third wish is that all individuals with cancer receive optimal comprehensive medical and psychosocial care that allows them to maximize their health and wellness.

Cancer affects the mind, the body, the soul, and the emotions. We are committed to help the whole person, not just the disease.

A cancer diagnosis should not be faced alone. Everyone needs information, guidance and support during treatment, recovery or recurrence.

The IDA MAE CENTER INC. Cancer Wellness , We respect the mind-body relationship and believe that quality of life is an essential goal.

Robert Richardson Sr., battled Pancreatic Cancer, seeing that his diagnosis provides an opportunity for personal growth, We all can embrace his words of empowerment.

(I CAN'T COMPLAIN.) IDA MAE CENTER wall of cancer patients and survivors.

We hope that the information that you find here will assist you in supporting our cancer wellness programs.

My family thanks you, in expressing your love, care and concerns. Having good information makes it possible to make good choices. Being active in supporting a cause is good for body, mind and spirit!

When Verna Richardsons mother was battling cancer, it was a lonely process filled with uncertainty and fear.

She wanted to make something meaningful come of her mothers death in 1984. Years later, working for the New River fitness center, Richardson started thinking about how she could improve the lives of people touched by cancer with her background in fitness and nutrition.

We watched (our mother) go through her battle with cancer not knowing what to do and how to help her feel better, said Richardson. So I came up with a wellness therapy program so we could help people who were suffering from cancer or survivors just feel better as they are going through their battle or recovery.

Richardson founded the Ida Mae Center, named for her mother, in 2009. The wellness therapy program isnt doctorprescribed medical care that will cure a cancer patient. Instead, its yoga classes, meditation, Zumba and counseling when the individual needs it. Some of the visitors to the Ida Mae Center have never had cancer, but come to get information on preventative measures or to enjoy the exercise and wellness classes. But for the people who do come while in their battle or recovery, the visits are always free.

Bernette Mundy, vice president of the Ida Mae Center and Richardson�s sister, said they try to make the atmosphere warm.

We talk to families about what their loved ones are going through and about stuff that they might be afraid to ask their doctor, said Mundy. The center feels more like a clubhouse than a hospital, she said. Richardson said many patients are also afraid people will judge them in a traditional fitness center setting.

They feel like if they go to a regular fitness center, the eyes are on them because either their hair has fallen out or they just look sickly, said Richardson. At the Ida Mae Center, cancer patients can rest assured that everyone their knows about what they are going through and understands.
