Events & Activities

Cancer may slow you down, but it doesn’t have to stop you from living a full life.

We offer many classes, programs and support groups that will help you feel well in mind, body and spirit. Whether you are interested in fitness or relaxation, yoga or tai chi, cooking or art therapy, whether you would like to learn strategies for coping better with the stress of every day life or would prefer to come to a support group or attend a post-treatment workshop, we have something for you.
