Cancer Support Groups & Classes

We have cancer support groups, programs, and resources to help you through your journey.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we've changed how we do support groups and classes. You can now attend support groups online.

Free Online Nia & Yoga

Cancer patients and caregivers can:

  • Join a free online Nia class for mindful, holistic movement and dance. To register, email Susan Tate.
  • Access free virtual gentle chair yoga classes to reduce anxiety and depression. Great for beginners. For details, contact Sara Yoder.

Peer Support

The Cancer Peer Support Program connects survivors and current patients. Trained cancer survivors share their experiences and insights to help those going through treatment. You can participate if you have had or have breast, gynecological, or lung cancer.

We also welcome caregivers to participate.
