The Compassionate Care Program provides support services that improve the physical and emotional well-being of cancer patients. This program focuses on providing comfort and support to patients during an incredibly challenging time in their lives. This is done through a variety of services including: a boutique, workshops that help address the appearance-related side effects of cancer, yoga and massage therapy, hotel accommodations for patients who travel to receive care, transportation assistance to appointments, and a nutrition bar to provide patients and families with healthy food options during treatments.
