Cancer Center Events, Classes and Activities
Cancer Resource Center
The Cancer Resource Center supports wellness and the healing process by providing patients, their families and the community with information related to cancer, including treatment options, clinical trials, emotional support and community resources. Our library includes a significant collection of books, videotapes and audiotapes, as well as access to the internet and several excellent health-related databases. The Resource Center staff will research cancer-related topics for people living with cancer. In addition, the Resource Center hosts a variety of support groups, exercise classes, monthly workshops, and directs people to appropriate community resources.
Art For Recovery
Art for Recovery is an award-winning program of the UCSF Helen Diller Family Comprehensive Cancer Center that brings artists, writers, musicians and medical students to the patients of UCSF Medical Center to encourage them to express their pain, anger, hopes and dreams through words and images. Consistent with the mission of the university--Caring, Healing, Teaching, Discovering--their aim is to give patients coping with life-threatening illness the opportunity to express their feelings through creative experiences.
