Having a diagnosis of cancer is life-changing, and often causes anxiety and feelings of isolation. Having a place to go for support can make a world of difference in your life. The Nancy Marx Cancer Wellness Center offers support to individuals and families dealing with this disease.
This program is designed to promote peer-to-peer support for cancer survivors who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, or recovering from surgery and for those who have recently completed treatment. Your partner will help you ease into NMCWC and introduce you to the various programs, events, resources, and support that we offer.
