Complementary cancer care alongside conventional treatment
Many people living with cancer seek complementary support alongside their conventional treatments. Why? Complementary therapies can significantly improve a patient’s quality of life by decreasing toxicity and side effects, strengthening the immune system, and supporting the body’s healing ability. We work with our patients and where possible collaborate with their oncologists, surgeons, and family doctors to develop therapeutic programs that help sustain wellness during and after treatment.

Give the Gift of Whole-Person Cancer Care
Cancer is preventable, treatment can be less debilitating, and the probability of recurrence can be reduced.
Cancer often has a catastrophic financial impact on individuals and their families. The OICC offers subsidized care to as many people as we can, but we are a charitable not-for-profit and receive no government funding, so our capacity to do so is limited.
So much can be done to improve quality of life for cancer patients and to help prevent recurrence.
Please help us provide subsidized care for patients who cannot afford integrative care and suffer unnecessary pain and distress.
