  • Networking & support groups to meet others who are living with cancer
  • Individual, couples and family counseling
  • Stress management & relaxation programming to reduce anxiety
  • Gentle exercise to get your body moving
  • Special speakers to learn more about your cancer
  • Nutrition groups and individual consultations

Please look through the program options or calendar. Find something that sounds interesting to you & call or sign up online.  You can also visit our Center in Homewood or Mokena- we are here for you!

Cancer Caregivers

When someone in your life has cancer you are a caregiver.  We think of caregivers as partners, famliy members, friends and co-workers. A loved ones’ diagnosis has an impact on everyone involved.  Caregiving can take an emotional and physical toll.  We have Caregiver Support groups, yoga for relaxation, a library full of information, counseling sessions to help you stay strong, and more. Please look over our calendar for scheduled events and review the program options or call the Center to schedule a free counseling session.
