THE 'LIVE WELL CARD'
If you have been impacted by cancer, you are eligible for free complementary therapy. Cancer survivors (anyone who has ever had a cancer diagnosis) can receive a Live Well card which is good for up to 5 complementary therapy sessions in 2021 (as funding permits) from our list of approved wellness providers. Caregivers are also eligible to receive a card. Call 890-0329 or email Diane to learn more.
