Massage therapy is a valuable self-care practice. It is often viewed as a complementary therapy that can be part of a holistic approach to cancer care, alongside medical treatments and supportive therapies. 

Massages will be given on a first-come, first-served basis in the lobby on the entry level. They are free to patients and caregivers.

Pet therapy can improve mental, emotional, and physical well-being by fostering positive experiences, companionship, and a sense of connection with animals. Swing by the lobby to meet our therapy dogs.

Led by experienced staff who understand the unique needs and concerns of people with cancer, this offering provides step-by-step guidance on tying scarves in different styles that cater to individual preferences and comfort levels. Whether you're looking for a simple yet elegant knot or a more intricate turban-style wrap, our team will teach you techniques that suit your style and help you feel comfortable and confident. 

Explore cancer support and survivorship services and resources available throughout your cancer experience. Whether you are newly diagnosed, in treatment, completed your treatment, or are a caregiver or friend supporting someone with cancer – there is something for everyone.
