Reflexology provides deep relaxation. It can reduce treatment side effects: neuropathy, nausea, insomnia & anxiety.

Cancer Connection provides a haven offering support and free programs for people with cancer and their loved ones.

Betsy's story is but one of many. She was diagnosed with advanced ovarian cancer when she was 47. Her most pressing question was how to tell her children, who were 7 and 10, but her doctors were focused on the surgery and chemotherapy she would have to undergo. It was at Cancer Connection where she found answers to her concerns about how her life and her family's lives had changed with her diagnosis. She was fearful when she joined the ovarian cancer support group, but those women became her family. They truly understood her feelings and offered simple common sense answers. They shared their courage. They were not afraid of her sadness. They exulted in her triumphs. That in a nutshell is what makes Cancer Connection invaluable.
