For your safety, and while cases of COVID-19 remain in our community, support groups and other wellness programs offered by Cancer LifeNet are being held virtually. For information on any of these programs please visit the Cancer LifeNet calendar of events or call 866-393-4355. We hope to resume in-person programs soon, but for now we continue to gather and remain connected to each other online. Thank you for understanding.
Cancer LifeNet programs are offered to individuals impacted by cancer who live in our community, regardless of where treatment is received. Whether newly diagnosed, in treatment, remission or having a recurrence, we invite you to participate in our support groups, integrative health offerings and other programs. For real time information about all support groups, classes and programs offered through UM Upper Chesapeake Health (both onsite and online), please visit our community calendar of events.

CLIMB™ - Children’s Lives Include Moments of BraveryToggle accordion item
There may be nothing more frightening to a child than learning his or her parent or family member has cancer. Kids often lack many of the coping skills that come with adulthood and can experience a wide range of emotions.
Created by The Children's Treehouse Foundation®, Children's Lives Include Moments of Bravery (CLIMB) is a free support program designed to help children cope when a family member has cancer. By creating a safe setting where kids can express their fears, concerns and questions, CLIMB helps children to be able to take comfort in knowing that they are never alone. It is designed to be fun and interactive for kids and reassuring for parents.

Quitting tobacco is one of the best things you can do for yourself. It isn't easy, but you can do it and we're here to help with free classes offered throughout the year. Learn more about the tobacco cessation class.
Yoga is a form of exercise that involves movement through different postures to build strength, improve balance and release tightness and tension in both the body and mind. It offers benefits for side effects that current and post-treatment patients experience, including fatigue, neuropathy, pain, loss of mobility and bone loss. Breathing techniques assist in calming the nervous system, easing anxiety and relaxing the body. Following a flow, students finish with a guided visualization or meditation.
Cancer LifeNet offers two levels of yoga classes. Level 1 is ideal for students new to the practice or seeking a gentler flow. Level 2 is designed for students who have greater range of motion and are comfortable moving in a variety of ways on the floor and in standing postures. Modifications will be offered in both classes to best meet the needs of students in attendance.
