More people are surviving cancer than ever before, but it can still impact many aspects of your life. CHI St Alexius Health hosts a variety of programs to help cancer survivors, caregivers, and family, manage the different challenges cancer presents.

All classes are free and are held from 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. in the CHI St. Alexius Health Boniface Auditorium (enter through the east patient entrance) unless otherwise noted.
