At the Lurie Cancer Center, your treatment plan includes care for the mind, spirit and body. Cancer Connections is just what the doctor ordered, introducing tools, techniques, and services you can use to re-energize during and after cancer treatment. Meetings are held several times a year, and patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals are invited to attend.
