Wellness House is here to help you. 

We are a team of warm and caring experts ready to help. We’re here for those who are newly diagnosed, in treatment, post treatment, caregivers and families. All of our programs and events are provided at no cost. 

What we offer – Free Cancer Support for You and Your Family

There’s a lot to think about when you’re living with cancer — whether you’re diagnosed or close to someone who is. Get support, build knowledge, and connect with others through classes, lectures, social events, and supportive groups led by our caring experts. All services and programs are at no cost to you. Our programs address the social, emotional, physical, psychological, and spiritual impacts of cancer. Wellness House offers over 520 online and in-person programs each month taught by experts who can help you through every step of cancer. 

Join us for an in-person program at Mile Square Health Center or an online class you can view from anywhere.
