Studies have shown that patients that are supported mind, body, and spirit do much better when faced with cancer. Patients report less pain, are better able to cope with diagnosis, treatment and side effects, and have a greater feeling of personal growth when they receive the support they need. Ironwood Cancer & Research Centers, 5810 W. Beverly Lane, offer support, education, and Tai Chi classes every month.

With community-based centers throughout the Valley, Ironwood offers advanced therapies and a multidisciplinary approach usually associated with large academic centers – but with a personalized touch that patients describe as “being treated like family.” Visit www.ironwoodcrc.com for additional locations.
