The HOPES Program focuses on improving the quality of life and well-being of Cancer Center patients, their families and friends through free wellness services plus education and support workshops. These services help you take care of your whole self — mind, body and spirit.
Caring for the Whole Person
The HOPES Program can help you feel better throughout your cancer experience. Social workers, wellness therapists, chaplains, nurses, experienced patients and caregivers, and other experts work together to provide HOPES workshops and services. Most of these small, comfortable sessions are held in the Maxwell V. Blum Cancer Resource Room in the Yawkey Center, 8th floor, Suite 8C, and are drop-in so you do not need to sign up ahead of time.
