At Mercy Cancer Center, we believe in complementing conventional medical care by integrating all aspects of healing through strengthening the body, educating the mind, and nurturing hope and courage. That's why we offer a wide range of therapies that can help relieve symptoms, ease treatment side effects, reduce anxiety and improve quality of life.
These therapies are available at no cost or for a very nominal fee, thanks to the support of practitioners who volunteer their time, the backing of Mercy Medical Center, and the generosity of individuals, corporate donors and foundation grants. Patients are encouraged to discuss their involvement with their physicians.

- Cancer WellFit
- Creative healing such as journaling, scrapbooking
- Informative classes pertaining to financial matters, nutrition, spirituality, experiencing the labryrinth
