Education and Wellness
We offer a wide range of educational and wellness programs. Our goal is to provide a variety of options to meet your needs.
We have workshops focused on the needs of mind, body and spirit, to enhance your quality of life while living with cancer. We provide learning opportunities aimed at empowering you to better cope with diagnosis, recovery, treatment and beyond. We hold educational forums that are open to the public, offering the latest information pertaining to breast, ovarian and gynecological cancer.
Our program calendar changes throughout the year. Please view this page often to check for new offerings. You can also visit our calendar.

Are you are looking for a new way to reduce stress, relax, and connect with your body, in the comfort of your home? Then consider trying Rosen Movement. Developed by physical therapist Marion Rosen, a health and wellness pioneer, Rosen Movement encourages relaxation through range of motion and stretching exercises set to music. The sequence of movements encourages flexibility through joint lubrication, chest and rib expansion, muscle lengthening and ease of body, mind and spirit. The movements are easy and simple.
No experience necessary. All you need are comfortable clothing and a private space to move freely. Attend one or all of the sessions.
INSTRUCTOR: Betty Ross is a Licensed Massage Therapist and a Certified Rosen Method Bodyworker. She is also certified in Core Energetic Therapy and is a Somatic Experiencing Practitioner. Betty is also a breast cancer survivor.
Comments from some past participants: “This program helped me relax & exercise at the same time.” ~ “I felt like my various joints were put through a full range of motion and I didn’t feel quite as stiff. It was nice to connect with others, even if just virtually.” ~ “Betty was wonderful and her choice of music had a smile on my face throughout the class. I left each class happy and feeling great.”
