Enrichment Sessions

Coronavirus Update: Classes, seminars and support groups have all been cancelled until further notice. 

For additional information, please call 888.628.1948.

Cancer treatment isn't easy. We're here to help guide you through your journey. 

Join us in a relaxed setting, led by knowledgeable and compassionate sources to give you the tools you need to live life to the fullest. Although we are here to provide support, this session is different from Living Better With Cancer because it focuses more on education and clarification after being diagnosed with cancer. Living Better With Cancer will continue to be a secondary resource for support and coping. Please join us for both!
