Ascension Saint Thomas Cancer Wellness Program

Because cancer treatment involves more than medical care, we provide programs to promote the healing of mind, body, and spirit during and after treatment. Through generous support of the Saint Thomas Foundation, we offer a variety of free classes and programs, such as progressive exercise, mindfulness/meditation, nutrition education, and demos. We invite our patients to join, become inspired, connect, and live better lives in survivor ship.
