Cancer Wellness Program

Living Well, Being Well; A Lifestyle for Cancer

The Cancer Wellness Program at the Center for Cancer Prevention and Treatment is an important part of the comprehensive cancer care continuum. Our wellness team is passionate about improving and sustaining the health and well-being of our patients.

The Cancer Wellness Program addresses the “Four Pillars of Wellness” and their relationship to cancer.


Each pillar is intended to help reduce the risk of developing another cancer, decrease the chance of recurrence and increase survival rates.

The program is designed for cancer patients who have completed acute cancer care and entering into the survivorship phase of their lives. Each patient receives an evaluation and an individualized wellness care plan to support their overall health and well-being.

Bridging the Gap to Wellness

Our wellness team is equipped to help patients transition from a focus on cancer treatment to engaging in lifestyle activities that lead to a well-balanced, healthy and vibrant life. With years of experience, our wellness experts have developed strategies to inspire and educate patients on how best to overcome any obstacles, address their personal challenges, and reevaluate their personal goals as they balance essential wellness and lifestyle practices that contribute to their physical, emotional, spiritual and mindful well-being.

The Cancer Wellness Program offers:

  • One-to-one evaluations and wellness sessions
  • A sustainable individualized wellness plan designed with each patient’s priorities, vision, needs and goals to improve their overall health and well-being
  • Bimonthly “well-check” sessions to provide encouragement, support and guidance through the wellness plan.
  • Individualized circuit exercise training and access to group exercise classes
