We are sensitive to the needs of cancer patients in our community and are currently developing the workshops and programs that we will be offering.
Our resources and programs are evidence-based and provided by professionals in our community.
We believe achieving and maintaining a balance of the mind, body, and soul is necessary for healing and living life to the fullest.

The following are the programs and workshops we will be offering initially - starting in May 2016.
As we gain momentum, more programs will be offered.
Mind power is one of the strongest and most useful powers you possess. The thoughts that pass through your mind influence your behavior and attitude and control your actions and reactions. As your thoughts are, so is your life.
An important part of coping with a cancer diagnosis is recognizing emotions and feelings. Treatment that deals with our emotions and relationships (sometimes called psychosocial interventions) can help people with cancer feel more upbeat and have a better quality of life. Support groups and relaxation techniques can be used to help reduce distress and cope with the emotions that come with a cancer diagnosis.
Education plays an important role in the success of a patient's cancer journey. Knowledge empowers patients and gives them the opportunity to become active participants in their cancer care.
Cancer 101 is the first of the educational programs we will be offering in our Cancer University series. The purpose of this program is to provide basic cancer information to patients with a new diagnosis of cancer. Information to be provided include:What is cancer? How is it diagnosed? What is cancer staging? and Basics of cancer treatment. This class will be facilitated by an Oncology Nurse.
This program is provided FREE of charge. Pre-registration is required. Each cancer patient may bring up to 2 family members or friends.
Date: 2nd Friday of every month
Time: 2:00pm to 3:00pm
Place: 501 SE Osceola St, Stuart, FL 34994

Cancer 101 is a partnership with HOW big IS YOUR
BRAVE Foundation at Martin Memorial - Educate
the mind, understand the diagnosis.
One of the easiest ways to maintain physical health is through proper nutrition and regular exercise. People who are able to make healthy diet and exercise choices tend to have more physical and mental energy, and sleep better.
Research strongly suggests that exercise is not only safe during cancer treatment, but it can also improve physical functioning and many aspects of quality of life. Moderate exercise has been shown to improve fatigue (extreme tiredness), anxiety, and self-esteem. It also helps heart and blood vessel fitness, muscle strength, and body composition (how much of your body is made up of fat, bone, or muscle).
Good nutrition is important for good health. Eating the right kinds of foods before, during and after cancer treatment can help you feel better and stay strong.
Certain issues for those going through cancer treatment or cancer survivors may prevent or affect their ability to exercise. Some programs may require written permission from your physician.

“Yoga teaches us to cure what need not be endured and endure what cannot be cured”
The soul is the third part of the balance, as it has a great affect on happiness and how people tend to view the world around them. Illnesses such as cancer can open a soulful conversation about life, death, purpose, meaning, and other core components of the human experience. Some people view illness, including challenges such as cancer, as opportunities for soul growth.
A newly diagnosed cancer patient can experience pain, shock, loss and fear. Recognizing that there are normal phases of loss which most of those with cancer experience is important to their healing.
Our SOUL programs are offered to help you and those who love you reduce anxiety and stress that often accompanies a cancer diagnosis.
