“The program helped me set my emotional GPS on joy and healing. I never thought joy was possible in cancer.” – Jeannie A.

If you’ve been diagnosed with cancer, feeling joyful may seem near impossible. But while worrying about what will happen next, feeling pressured by family members and doctors to make decisions, having a treatment plan you don’t fully understand, and feeling crummy as a result of those treatments and procedures may feel strenuous – to say the least – all that seemingly insurmountable stress can be overcome.

Cancer doesn’t have to be a mental and spiritual obstruction.

In fact, you can have cancer and be bursting with happiness.

Using the Mind to Heal

Based on the influential work of O. Carl Simonton, MD, an acclaimed oncologist, the Beat The Odds program is a ten week course that focuses on mind/body medicine skills and techniques, providing you with the right tools to find wonder and glee in your life despite being diagnosed with cancer.

All of our scientifically proven techniques are practiced in class and can be implemented immediately to address emotional, spiritual, and physical anguish.

“My cancer will not stop me from having fun and joy. Quite contrary – it motivates me to have more happiness in my life despite my diagnosis. That is how I beat the odds.” – Barbara W.

We truly want you to be blissful, but there is another more important reason we’ve made finding joy the primary focus of our program: your mindset can play a pivotal role in the healing process.

While typical cancer treatments such as chemotherapy, surgery, and radiation are crucial, research has shown that cancer patients who also work to re-frame their thinking may increase the likelihood of survival and can dramatically improve their quality of life.

It is NOT a Support Group

While we provide lots of support to our participants, this is a structured 10 week course consisting of ten 2.5 hour classes teaching practical skills. You will not be expected to share with others problems or emotions you want to keep private. As a matter of fact, you will learn how to effectively deal with these problems and emotions and resolve them in the privacy of your home. Private, individual or couple/family, sessions complement the program and are offered to those who are willing to further hone their skills of reducing daily stress and addressing their specific issues.

We know that treating cancer can be a hefty expense, but the good news is that the cost of our program is covered by most insurance plans.
