Mind-Body Therapies for Cancer Patients
A cancer diagnosis and its subsequent treatment cause incredible stress for most people. Overcoming and calming that stress through Mind-Body Therapies provides another supportive element for cancer patients and their family members at the Disney Family Cancer Center.
