These programs are for those who wish to maintain optimal wellness following a cancer diagnosis and while undergoing treatment and recovery:

  • Women’s Cancer Support Groups
    The best support often comes from those who have, themselves, experience cancer and treatment. The Women's Cancer Support Groups are open to women of all ages confronting any cancer diagnosis. One group is offered in Poway:

  • Look Good . . . Feel Better
    Cancer can rob a woman of her energy, appetite and strength. But it doesn’t have to take away her self-confidence. Look Good ... Feel Better is a FREE American Cancer Society program designed to help women cope with the appearance-related side effects of cancer treatment. All cosmetics and skin-care products are complimentary. Palomar Health is pleased to be able to host these free classes throughout the year at Palomar Medical Center and Pomerado Hospital. To register for a class at either location, call the American Cancer Society at 800.227.2345.
