The Healing Project, a Door County Medical Center program that provides free integrative health care services to individuals with cancer, is now accepting new participants. If you are recovering from cancer or newly diagnosed, you can participate in The Healing Project at no cost.
A cancer diagnosis takes a toll on more than the just the body. Integrative therapies have been shown to benefit the physical, mental and spiritual health of those living with cancer at any stage.
The Healing Project provides a limited number of free integrative health care services to Door County residents living with cancer. Services include acupuncture, energy therapy, massage therapy, nutrition counseling, behavioral health counseling and mindfulness.
Healing Project participants receive services from DCMC staff at the Sturgeon Bay campus. The program is overseen by Integrative Health Director Dr. Chona Antonio, who also provides acupuncture services. The program is funded by the Cancer Healing Fund at the Door County Medical Center Foundation.
On Nov. 4, the Sturgeon Bay Visitors Center and participating businesses helped to raise awareness of and funds for The Healing Project through the Shop and Dine Event. If you weren’t able to participate in Shop and Dine Day, you can still donate to support The Healing Project through gofundme.com/the-healing-project.
