We believe surviving cancer begins the day of diagnosis and continues every day thereafter. Our goal is to help you maintain your overall health and well-being during your cancer treatment. EMBRACE is a series of workshops facilitated by your Support Services team that address physical, emotional, and practical issues that can arise during and after treatment.

Virtual sessions will take place on the second Tuesday of the month from noon to 1:30 p.m. via Zoom.

Topics to be covered include:
  • January - Exercise During and After Treatment
  • February - Legacy: The Art of Memory and Meaning-Making
  • March - Empowering Children through a Loved One’s Cancer Experience
