The Cancer Institute at St. Francis Hospital
The Picture of Health - Art therapy program for cancer patients and caregivers helps decrease anxiety, promote relaxation and express emotions,
The Nutrition and Cooking programs - cooking is therapeutic and a great way for patients and caregivers to gain a sense of control during an unsettled time.
