About Cancer Connections

Learn, Connect & Renew

At the Lurie Cancer Center, your treatment plan includes care for the mind, body and spirit. Cancer Connections is just what the doctor ordered, introducing tools, techniques and services you can use to reenergize during and after treatment. Patients and caregivers are invited to attend our programs and learn from cancer experts and find local and national support resources available to both patients and caregivers.

Cancer Connections offers wellness-focused seminars a few times a year, geared toward patients and caregivers. They can help you:

  • Learn simple strategies to eat well, move more and manage stress and fatigue
  • Connect with fellow survivors, support programs and other communities facing similar challenges
  • Renew your sense of well-being with massage, acupuncture, meditation, healing touch and other integrative therapies
