Healing and Cancer Foundation

 

Welcome!

The Healing and Cancer Foundation helps people affected by cancer with a practical, integrated approach to their diagnosis. We offer life skills training and a unique perspective on mind, body and spirit that can transform the experience of illness into a journey toward wholeness.

We endorse 'integrated cancer care' which means getting the best of scientifically-proven medical care and combining it with wisdom-based healing practices. We focus on the many simple and effective things you can do for yourself every day to improve your health and overall well-being, and to live a life filled with love and purpose.

Our core belief is that every person possesses the wisdom, compassion and power within to heal - including you.
