Renée Schick, previous owner of Renee’s Survivor Shop, has served cancer survivors in the community since 2003. Diagnosed with cancer at the age of 36, she had difficulty finding the cancer-related products she needed to help with the side effects from her surgeries, chemotherapy and radiation throughout her treatment.
After defeating the disease, Renée wanted to make a difference and use her experience to help others facing a similar situation. She sought to create a store with a positive, encouraging environment.
The new Renée’s Survivor Shop is located at the Eleanor N. Dana Cancer Center on The University of Toledo's Health Science Campus. Here you will find Renée and her staff of caring and knowledgeable professionals to help you with your needs.
