Cancer Support Groups and Classes
Patients can take advantage of a variety of holistic therapies such as yoga, meditation and tai chi, which have been shown to provide meaningful comfort and support when coping with cancer. Programs are available for family caregivers, as well. People can also participate in cancer support groups and groups for caregivers.
At the Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center at NWH, we provide cancer support groups and classes to support our commitment to treat the whole patient, not just the disease. We understand that different types of support work for different people, which is why we sponsor a number of supportive groups and activities that have shown to be very helpful to our patients. Some of these programs are offered through the Bruce and Andrea Yablon Cancer Health and Wellness Program.
Look for classes in yoga, chair yoga, chi gong, meditation, living with cancer support group, and other programs specially designed for people with cancer. View our list of programs on our NWH Calendar of Events.
