What’s ON:

Wellwood now has a wide range of supports available, wherever you are, to help you continue to live well with cancer during these challenging times. 
In addition to a variety of self-care resources, many of our programs and groups are now taking place on Zoom, as we are continually adding more. If you are interested in participating, please contact us. For up to date information on program dates, please refer to our online registration form.
For security reasons, registered participants are asked not to share Zoom links, and we will also not admit anyone who isn’t registered to the virtual room.
To protect vulnerable ages, programs are for 18+, with the exception of our programs for Kids & Youth. Please ask us for suggestions on how to support teens living with cancer in the family, or about local resources for children and teens with cancer.
