Rebuild and Renew: Cancer Wellness Programs

Providence Cancer Care is pleased to offer a variety of FREE Cancer Wellness classes. All classes are available through Zoom and open to all patients, whether currently in treatment, having had cancer or living life’s journey with cancer. Classes are held 5 days a week and designed to support patients in a community setting, through a variety of integrative therapies and modalities. Patients do not need to be a Providence patient to attend.

There is a silver lining to the current state of gathering in our world. Through Zoom, it is possible for patients to safely join in classes from their own home, whether they live locally or across the United States. The belief behind Providence Cancer Wellness Program and gathering in community, stands more evident now than ever:
