The Healing Garden has been providing services to women and their families affected by breast cancer since 2000.  The Healing Garden is now beginning to expand its delivery of complementary health care through the establishment of off site holistic care programs -- including physical fitness, expressive therapies, garden therapy and others.  They are partnering with HealthAlliance Hospital's Simonds-Sinon Regional Cancer Center, where they will offer a series of complementary programs including exercise, art therapy and music therapy.  They will also train program leaders in order to continue these offerings beyond the year of this grant.
