In our Survivorship Center, we describe the support services available to you and your family during and after treatment.
Resources for Life After Cancer
Our Resources for Life After Cancer program provides a full range of educational support services, including individual and family counseling, lectures and support groups, and practical guidance on employment and insurance issues.

We offer a number of therapies including various types of massage, acupuncture, hypnotherapy, meditation, visualization and other mind-body therapies, music therapy, and nutritional counseling, as well as classes such as yoga, tai chi, and chair aerobics.
