Wellness for Life

Incorporate a focus on mind, body, and spirit into your care.

We are committed to integrating wellness components into your treatment and helping you make healthy lifestyle changes. We want you to feel empowered to regain a sense of control over your cancer.

Cultivating healthy habits is especially important for those living with cancer and can help you build strength, reduce the severity of side effects, reduce risks of developing secondary cancers or other health issues, and enjoy life more.

Research shows that by integrating physical activity, proper nutrition and mind-body-spirit awareness, you can feel better and reduce the side effects of cancer treatment such as nausea, depression, anxiety, fatigue and weight gain.

In keeping with Regional Cancer Center mission of providing comprehensive care with a commitment to optimal quality of life for patients and families, Regional Cancer Center has partnered with the Glenwood Park Y to offer supportive, holistic classes in a nurturing and spacious environment.

The classes will be taught by expert fitness professionals and will be offered to cancer patients, & survivors, completely free of charge.
