Wellness & Movement

There’s no way around it – combating cancer requires energy and strength. There are daily battles with fatigue, stress, even sleep. These programs help you face the challenges of cancer to the best of your ability.

Special Series & Programs

Among days of both good news and not-so-good news, you need to embrace opportunities to express your emotions honestly and freely. We promise it will make coping with cancer just a little bit easier.

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

It’s important to find things that allow you some control of each day – activities that lift your mood, enhance your sense of well-being, and simply make you feel good. 

Nutrition & 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 and other beauty accessories to help patients maintain their outward self during their treatment journey.
