Complementary Cancer Care

Complementary Cancer Care, INC – Non-Medical Cancer Support Services in Brevard County, FL

Date grant awarded: March 16, 2019

Complementary Cancer Care’s mission is to provide free non-medical services for anyone in Florida’s Brevard County who is dealing with a cancer diagnosis. The services are intended to complement participants’ medical treatment and support all aspects of their healing. The organization began when two yoga teachers with backgrounds working with cancer met through an executive director of another nonprofit organization designed to alleviate cancer burden and they recognized the shared passion. At the end of 2018, three compassionate and determined women joined forces and organized Complementary Cancer Care, INC.

Together they offer weekly yoga for cancer survivorship classes and monthly informational support groups however have a plan to expand offerings to other healthy and holistic lifestyle practices, such as tai chi, meditation, nutrition, community activities and more.
