Wellness Within is a nonprofit wellness center for patients, survivors, caregivers and families affected by the trauma of cancer. Located in downtown Roseville, our center offers a warm and inviting space for clients to relax, connect with others, and experience a sense of community. All our services are provided on a pay-as-you-can basis, ensuring that cost is barrier to no one. Our main programs include classes in Nutrition Education, Mindfulness and Meditation, Healing Movement, and Expressive Arts, all of which aim enhance an individual's ability to experience quality of life through practices that incorporate physical, emotional, and mental well-being. We also host guest speakers, offer resources through a lending library, and connect with hospitals to expand our reach.

Wellness Within was opened with a firestorm raging in our hearts and a greater understanding of what it takes to support someone fighting cancer. Those who have survived the dreadful ordeal know it does not end when treatment stops. Cancer invades, turns lives upside down, raises all kinds of havoc and the financial burdens can be devastating. "Life altering" can be an understatement during and after treatment. Although great strides have been made in finding more effective treatments for some cancers, its wrath is relentless, causing much disruption in the lives of our loved ones. At Wellness Within we will not find a cure or raise money to find a cure, rather, we are in the trenches with people as they navigate a diagnosis and treatment, offering tools to restore healing, manage stress, and instill hope.

"Wellness Within provides invaluable services to patients, survivors and their families coping with a cancer diagnosis. I have been impressed with the results patients have experienced from participation in their programs. I have found Wellness Within's programs to compliment patient's medical treatments. I give my full endorsement to Wellness Within and am thankful for their incredible dedication and important work." - Ernie Bodai, M.D., F.A.C.S., Director, Breast Cancer Survivorship Institute
