About Us

Celebrating its 24th anniversary in June 2006, The Wellness Community® (TWC) is an international non-profit organization dedicated to providing emotional support, education and hope for people affected by cancer. TWC’s professionally-led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body programs are based on peer-reviewed, evidence-based research. TWC utilizes founder Dr. Harold Benjamin’s Patient Active Concept, which states that people with cancer can learn vital skills to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation, and restore hope – regardless of the stage of disease. Most importantly, TWC provides a home-like setting for people with cancer where they can connect with and learn from each other. Today, there are 21 Wellness Communities across the United States, five in development, 28 satellites, two centers abroad in Tokyo and Tel Aviv, and a community online at The Virtual Wellness Community (http://www.thewellnesscommunity.org). At The Wellness Community, all programs are free of charge.
