How to Begin

Welcome. We are glad you are here.

Survivor Wellness is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization supporting cancer survivors.

WHAT IS A CANCER SURVIVOR?

“An individual is considered a cancer survivor from the time of diagnosis, through the balance of his or her life. Family members, friends, and caregivers are also impacted and are therefore included in this definition.” (NCI, 2021)

At Survivor Wellness, programming is available to cancer patients and cancer survivors, as well as their family members, loved ones and caregivers - collectively, CANCER SURVIVORS.

Programming is offered at no cost.

We strive to reduce the financial burden of a cancer diagnosis, treatment and beyond. In addition, we strive to increase mental, emotional, physical, social, and spiritual health through the services and support offered to the cancer survivors, thrivers, previvors, and caregivers who walk through the doors at Survivor Wellness.

Survivor Wellness does not discriminate on the basis of race, culture, gender, sexuality, nation of origin, disability, or age. Survivor Wellness welcomes all cancer survivors (as defined above), including those that belong to marginalized groups such as the LGBTQ+ and BIPOC communities.  Members of all communities are at risk of developing cancer in their lifetimes; however, social determinants of health (SDOH) in members of marginalized communities lead to an increased risk and likelihood of developing cancer.
