Cancer affects more than just the body. It weighs heavily on families, caregivers, and patients’ mental health. At OCSRI, we’re here to help you fight every aspect cancer—even the non-physical symptoms. With our Hope & Healing program, patients and their caregivers have access to free classes, which teach valuable coping skills and inspire hope.
Your overall health requires an integrative approach, and the Hope & Healing program utilizes a variety of therapeutic methods to provide helpful information and genuine support. Our classes include interesting topics, such as Stress Management, Music Appreciation and Art/Painting, and Yoga, in addition to numerous support groups.
