Our Story

Survivor Wellness also offers integrative health care trainees, providers and clinicians with education, training, and startup business opportunities via our incubator project, The Survivor Institute

Programs are delivered at our beautiful campus located in two historic homes in central Salt Lake City with 40,000 square feet of space, including a yoga/movement studio and event space, a private counseling cottage, as well as beautiful gardens and outdoor spaces. (Online options are also available for certain programs.)

We accept anyone affected by a cancer diagnosis, without any demonstration of financial need. Just as the course of cancer cannot be predicted, neither can the effects of diagnosis and treatment - physical, mental, emotional, spiritual, social, and financial.  Programming is intended to alleviate the burdens and increase wellness in all of these areas.

As our clients say, "This place heals the things the doctors cannot."

Programming at Survivor Wellness is funded by foundations, businesses, and individuals like you. To support Survivor Wellness, click here!

We provide an estimated 1000 user days per year, and around 65% of our clientele live at or below the AMI. We are extremely grateful for the support of our donors and granting organizations.

All donors and members of the community are encouraged to attend our annual event, Survivors at the Summit, which has been held continuously for 25 years. We celebrate the triumph of the human spirit with the ascent to the summit of Hidden Peaks at Snowbird Resort, where yellow Tribute Flags inscribed with names of those living with and lost to cancer fly their messages over the Wasatch Mountains.


This organization was established by Tika Beard and a host of courageous members and dedicated caregivers of the cancer community in Salt Lake City, Utah. The current staff and administration of Survivor Wellness offers our deepest respect and gratitude to these trailblazers. 

Our organization honors the history of Holy Cross Hospital, the Montgomery Family, and those who work courageously to serve those living with cancer in the Salt Lake City area.

We acknowledge that Survivor Wellness sits on the ancestral ground and homelands of the indigenous Ute, Paiute, Shoshone and Goshute tribes.  

Thank you.

Survivor Wellness is still located at 59 S 1100 E. You are welcome to stop by for a visit. We are generally in the office from 10-6 daily; however, it's best to call ahead. We look forward to seeing you.
