CancerCare Introduces Meditation App

PUBLISHED June 19, 2018
At CancerCare, we understand that a cancer diagnosis can bring up a range of emotions and experiences. Hearing the words “You have cancer” from a doctor can be devastating and the period immediately following your diagnosis can often be chaotic. It is normal to feel stressed or anxious, but there are techniques you can use to help relax your body and calm your mind.

To complement our free, emotional support services for people with cancer and their loved ones, CancerCare has partnered with BodyMind Sessions to bring you the CancerCare Meditation app. The app aims to help people affected by cancer manage the symptoms of treatment, let go of anxiety, achieve deep, restful sleep and stay emotionally balanced.

The CancerCare Meditation app features guided meditation sessions and inspirational talks to address the needs of people with cancer, plus more than 100 free hours of beautiful, soothing music and natural sounds. Think of it as your mental health toolbox, filled with convenient ways to help you relax your body, calm your mind and reignite hope during stress-filled days.

Cancer and its treatment can be stressful for people with cancer and their caregivers. Relaxation techniques and other mind/body practices can help calm your mind and sharpen your ability to focus. These techniques offer creative ways to reduce stress caused by cancer and to maintain inner peace. Some people use these techniques to help them relax as they wait for treatments or test results. The CancerCare Meditation app offers many ways to relax, from soothing meditations to inspirational talks.

Download the free CancerCare Meditation app for the iPhone (Android coming soon).
