Oncology Programs

Who We Are

Hult Center for Healthy Living’s oncology support programs and services offer a variety of wellness services to empower anyone at any stage of their cancer journey and improve their quality of life.

What We Do

We understand during the journey that those with cancer may experience unpleasant side effects and face treatment regimens which can be challenging emotionally, mentally, and physically.  Our support programs and services seek to help alleviate these by offering support and complementary care.  We offer a range of low cost and no cost services for individuals with a cancer diagnosis, cancer survivors, and caregivers.  No cost services include individual and family counseling, support groups, individual and group nutrition counseling, healthy cooking demonstrations, healthy living workshops and seminars, and healthy living and exercise classes. Massage therapy is offered at a low cost of $35 for those in treatment, and $45 for survivors and caregivers.
