Cancer Support Services

You are a survivor from the day of your diagnosis. We are here to surround you with support.

A cancer diagnosis is a beginning, not an end. From the day of your diagnosis, we provide services to help support you and your family. We support you and your family with:

  • Inner Beauty: a specialty salon for cancer survivors
  • Counseling to help you cope with the emotional challenges of a cancer diagnosis
  • Support groups and programs to help you connect with other survivors
  • Nutrition to boost your health during and after treatment
  • Social services to support your recovery
  • Physical wellness and cancer exercise classes
  • Financial counseling and assistance
  • Lymphedema services to reduce pain and increase movement

Generous funding from the Methodist Jennie Edmundson Hospital Foundation, the Harper family, the Methodist Hospital Foundation and the Wings of Hope Cancer Support Center offer these and other services to those impacted by cancer.
