Nutrition is important at any stage of the cancer journey. Wellspring’s Nourish program provides many different sessions on cancer and nutrition using latest research to teach the fundamentals of good nutritional practices for cancer patients and, in many instances, includes cooking demonstrations, food sampling and take-home recipes. If you, or someone you are caring for is experiencing side-effects of treatment that make eating difficult, or want to know more about how healthy eating can aid in cancer recovery and reduce the risk of cancer coming back, then these sessions are for you.

The programs above are offered on Wednesdays at The Sobey Cancer Support Centre in Halifax and Saturdays at Sobeys Clayton Park, 287 Lacewood Drive, Halifax, Nova Scotia.

Relaxation and Visualization is led by a professional program leader who leads the group in guided mediation followed by a guided imagery session and a group discussion.
