From Cancer to Health™

People with cancer feel a great deal of stress. Over time, that stress can sometimes disrupt the healing process and your ability to fight your illness and recover.

From Cancer to Health™ Can Help

From Cancer to Health™ helps people recently diagnosed with cancer manage their stress. Research shows that the program helps people:

  • Reduce stress
  • Improve social support
  • Have fewer physical side effects from cancer treatments
  • Have easier communication with their health care providers

  • How Does From Cancer to Health™ Work?

    From Cancer to Health™ was designed with the specific needs of people with cancer in mind. Doctoral student therapists lead the weekly program to help you learn:

  • Strategies to help manage stress
  • Ways to lessen the impact of physical symptoms of cancer
  • Skills to cope with common problems faced by people with cancer

  • What to Expect

    The From Cancer to Health™ program will be led by doctoral student therapists supervised by a licensed psychologist. Each week, you will:

  • Learn about your illness and share your experience with a trained professional
  • Learn a new way to manage your stress, physical side effects, or other common problems
  • Discuss ways to put your new skills to everyday use


  • All services are currently provided free of charge with free garage parking available.
