Liverpool's Wellness Centre programs support adult cancer survivors and carers by offering a variety of activities to benefit individual needs. Funding from the 2015 Dry July Grant Program will enable the Centre to continue to offer courses such as yoga, Tai Chi, Qi Gong, and massage, following a successful pilot program.
All of these programs serve as complementary therapies and exercises to conventional cancer treatment, and can help with strengthening and flexibility as well as reducing anxiety, pain, and fatigue.
These programs at the Liverpool Cancer Therapy Wellness Centre rely entirely on community support for funding.
UPDATE: Some of the feedback received from our patients attending the programs includes:
“The art session is very relaxing and meeting new people is so positive, especially when you are living with cancer. It’s wonderful to be able to come to such a positive uplifting activity with such a talented lady as Laurel."
"Zumba is such a fun way to exercise and to meet new people. The instructions are easy to follow the moves are great and I really enjoy both the dancing and the social aspects.” LM
