The Cancer Connection Idaho was created to address the need for comprehensive non-medical support for people with cancer and their families. We embrace holistic, individualized approaches to health and healing. We will provide quality support and educational wellness programs that will empower individuals, give them tools and resources, and provide them with healthy coping strategies.
The Healing Circle (Mind/Body Skills Group) will be a 6-week program of 1.5 hour sessions beginning Wednesday May 15th, through June 19th. You will learn a sequence of self-care strategies, which include breathing, stillness, gentle movement, tapping, Qi Gong self-massage, dance and more.
Intro to Complementary Medicine
This class will be held Tuesday, June 18th and will outline the different categories of complementary medicine, their benefits and uses in cancer survivorship and address their critical role in stress management.

I am committed to the idea that The Cancer Connection Idaho will provide free services to those in need in collaboration with all our fine health care facilities and practitioners in the Treasure Valley. There is more than enough heartache to go around and more than enough energy in our valley to help mend the heartache.
Physical and emotional changes can have a huge effect in our lives. It is my goal to encourage those affected to embrace the positive side. It can far outweigh the negative.
My son-in-law was diagnosed with mouth cancer. I spent a month in the UK during and after his extensive surgery. I didn’t know anyone there and was pretty much on my own in a foreign country without my support system. But during that month away, the importance of having a community was brought home to me in a very personal way.
My hope for The Cancer Connection is that we can help others as they embark on such an unfamiliar journey and I know that our family will directly benefit from the resources offered in this new resource.
My dream is to provide a place where people living with cancer can find camaraderie, joy, support, and hope. A place where they can get their non-medical needs met by educating and empowering themselves beyond what traditional medicine can provide.
