Rebuild and Renew: Cancer Wellness Programs
St. Joseph Health Regional Cancer Care is pleased to offer a variety of Cancer Wellness Programs to patients.
These classes are now available in several online formats through ZOOM, YouTube and in video format. Classes are designed to support patients in a community setting, through a variety of integrative therapies and modalities. All classes are open to all patients in our community, whether currently in treatment, having had cancer or living life with cancer.
A silver lining to the current state of gathering in our world, has motivated us to move online, now making it possible for patients to join in classes whether they live locally or across the United States. The belief and motto behind St. Joseph Health Cancer Wellness Program and gathering in community, stands more evident now than ever:
"Together We Are Stronger!"

Patient Support Group
This group support is led, via ZOOM, by a St. Joseph Health licensed marriage and family therapist. There is opportunity to find emotional support and encouragement from others coping with cancer. It is a safe place to share resources, learn new ways to manage fatigue, stress and gain insight and ideas on the art of balancing life with a cancer diagnosis.
Art from the Heart
Art From The Heart, art therapy, is offered in various formats to enable and encourage individuals to create their own pathway toward their health and wellbeing through a wide variety of art forms.
A managed and private St. Joseph email format now exists to enabling the sharing of art, poetry, music, books, nature etc. to inspire other patients in the wellness community. Patients are finding pride and joy in sharing and appreciating learning new ways of enjoying life and finding peace and happiness in new ways.
