At Baptist Cancer Center, cancer care goes beyond treatments and office visits. THRIVE exists to help you—physically, emotionally and spiritually—from the moment of diagnosis, through treatment, and on to your new life as a cancer survivor.
A Program to Help You Live Well
THRIVE is a comprehensive program designed to guide you through cancer treatment. The series includes classes, seminars and support groups that address nutrition, fitness, mental well-being and spirituality, as well as seminars to help you understand cancer genetics and manage the financial aspects of care.
THRIVE meets you the moment you enter our doors, whether you are newly diagnosed or have an existing diagnosis. We're here to walk with you through your journey.
How It Works
You'll learn about THRIVE at your first Baptist Cancer Center appointment, and use this site to register for free online classes and events that interest you. The program addresses a variety of topics, including:

Cancer can have a profound impact on your mental health. Learn techniques for managing stress and depression, and how breathing, meditation and positive thinking can improve your outlook.
Family histories can sometimes play a role in determining one's risk for cancer, and path to recovery. Meet our genetic counselors and better understand the significance of family history and cancer genetics.
New treatments and procedures are being introduced all the time, and can bring hope for a more complete recovery for some patients. Learn about our participation in clinical trials and how the research process works.
