~ Empowering Cancer Survivors and the Communities that Support them to Achieve Optimal Wellness ~
Tucson Cancer Conquerors is an all-volunteer non-profit support group run by cancer survivors and the community of people who support them. We offer a variety of creative wellness programs designed to inspire and empower cancer survivors to be proactive about their health, improving the quality of their lives, both during and after cancer treatment.
The good news is, you don’t have to be a cancer survivor to be involved in our holistic approach to wellness. Exercise, nutrition, education and stress reduction are all essential components of cancer prevention and can benefit everyone! In addition to our regular programming, we also offer an opportunity to network with others through social activities and one-to-one peer support program for the newly diagnosed.
Please take a few moments to browse our website and check out what we have to offer. Bring a friend – we have something for everyone!
You don’t have to have cancer or be a survivor to be a part of Tucson Cancer Conquerors. Our exercise and activity programs are designed for anyone wanting to improve their health with inspiring people in beautiful surroundings!
If there’s one thing we like to do, it’s have a good time! Every month we have a dinner to celebrate birthdays and we have a let’s-catch-up lunch, plus we add in other fun events like happy hours, day trips, holiday parties and weekend retreats.
Whether you just need someone to talk to or need help finding additional support, we can help. We start the process by matching you to a member who has had similar experiences, and you’ll feel like you’ve found a new best friend!
July is National UV Safety Month, and it’s a good time to be aware of the sun’s good and bad qualities. Remembering to wear sunscreen is only part of the equation and certainly help lower your risk of developing a form of skin cancer, such as melanoma. Sunburns often occur when we’re not paying attention and although sunburns are remarkably common during the summer, they can also be dangerous, as they’re a huge risk factor for skin cancer. Learn more about how you can safely enjoy the sun by visiting the American Cancer Society’s Be Safe In The Sun web page.
