Cancer Specific Programs

Our cancer specific programs include drop-in groups where those facing cancer can gain information, gather for support, and share their concerns. Family members are welcome to attend where noted.

We encourage you to also explore some of our other programs like exercise which helps to address some of the physical side effects from treatment, our hands-on cooking classes, our gentle movement classes which include tai chi, yoga and qigong or art therapy which provides an opportunity to find ways to use creative expression to cope with the cancer journey.
