Wellness & Movement

There’s no way around it – dealing with a cancer diagnosis requires energy and strength. Staying physically active before, during and after treatment can greatly improve physical and mental health.

Special Series & Programs

Join us for our Special Series and Programs. These programs explore all facets of healing through a variety of interesting and fun events that bring us together around our shared experiences. These programs change quarterly.

Support Groups

When diagnosed with cancer, you may experience shock, anger, sadness, and fear. Even your closest family members likely will not understand how you feel. But to paraphrase a well-known song, “we can get by with a little help from our friends.”

Healing Arts

Dealing with cancer is stressful – on your body, mind, and spirit.  It’s so important to care for ALL of you through our healing touch programs.  Taking time to relax can benefit you in countless ways.

Information & Education

From lectures hosted by top medical experts, legal, and financial experts to spirituality and self-care, our information and education programs can help participants and families prepare for difficult times while providing much-needed support.

Wigs & Beauty

The Erie Cancer Wellness Center offers numerous wigs with free styling by wig experts, as well as other beauty accessories to help you feel your best during and after your treatment.
