Cancer Wellness Programs and Support Groups
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 of the groups is offered in Poway:
