Undergoing cancer treatment is a difficult time for patients and their families. We recognize a patient’s need to share experiences and draw strength from others going through a similar situation. For this reason, Cancer Care Centers of Brevard partner with the following organizations to give patients and their families access to support programs that can provide information, guidance, and understanding of living through cancer.
Whether recently diagnosed, undergoing treatment, or managing your disease, we’re here to support you and your loved ones every step of the way.
Complementary Cancer Care
In this context, HEAL does not necessarily mean CURE, but instead, refers to a state where someone experiences less suffering and feels more whole, no matter their cancer diagnosis or prognosis.
Complementary Cancer Care programs complement medical treatment and fill the gaps between patient and person:
Weekly movement classes address body changes
Monthly support groups and creative expression classes address changes in relationships
Seasonal educational talks and our library of resources empower through information and new ideas on the road to healing
