Marty Nason and Diane Martell speak about the Cancer Support Community of West Valley, Ventura and Santa Barbara.
The Cancer Support Community Valley/Ventura/Santa Barbara is part of an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to providing free support, education and hope to men and women affected by cancer. Through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops, nutrition and exercise programs, and mind/body connection classes, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation and restore hope, regardless of the stage of their disease. The first Wellness Community opened in Santa Monica, California, in 1982 and we opened our doors in 1991. Today, there are 22 Wellness Communities across the United States, five in development, 28 satellites, two centers abroad in Tokyo and Tel Aviv, and a community online – The Virtual Wellness Community.
