People who have received care there tell us the center feels like home and focuses on more than just their illness.

"They address your emotional needs, physical, stress needs that is brought on by cancer," cancer survivor Sara Bell said. "And not only for the patients but for their caregivers and family, as well."

Among the services the resource center provides are wigs, massage therapy and tai chi.
