Incorporated in February 2003, SLEW Cancer Wellness Center (SLEW) is a 501(C)(3) nonprofit agency helping uninsured, under insured and low-income women with all types of cancer.

Its Executive Director, Olga Young, founded the agency after discovering healthcare disparities for those women who could not afford quality aftercare services.

In keeping with its mission, SLEW provides FREE emotional and physical support to meet the needs of disadvantaged women by providing a continuum of care that restores the health and dignity of vulnerable women who become isolated and invisible after treatment. SLEW is the ONLY agency of its kind in Bexar and surrounding counties.
