“The Anticancer Lifestyle Program has been a great addition to our Cancer Center here in Louisiana. The resources reinforce the importance of physical and mental wellbeing throughout survivorship. We are so grateful to have this program help our patients not just survive after cancer, but to thrive.”
“I wholeheartedly recommend this much-needed program. It picks up where the office visit ends. The science-based lifestyle changes recommended in this highly accessible and self-paced course can reduce the risk of cancer as well as other debilitating diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease.”
“Absolutely wonderful course!!!! This course came at EXACTLY the point in my journey when I needed it.”
If you have received a cancer diagnosis, you know that the hundreds of questions and concerns you have about what’s to come can be as stressful as the cancer treatment itself. But research shows that if you mentally prepare yourself to handle cancer treatment by getting stress and anxiety under control, you can improve your quality of life and become an active participant in your own recovery.
Created by leading psychologists specializing in oncology, the Mindfulness-Based Cancer Recovery program is based on mindfulness-based stress reduction (MBSR), a therapeutic combination of mindfulness meditation and gentle yoga now offered to cancer survivors and their loved ones in hundreds of medical centers, hospitals, and clinics worldwide.
