The Hunt Cancer Institute provides the full continuum of cancer care, from
prevention through survivorship. In addition to expert care from diagnosis
through treatment, we also provide a range of resources and support that
can help to make the journey through cancer treatment less anxiety-provoking
and more comfortable for you and the people in your life.

Among the cancer resources and support services we offer are:
Cancer Resource Center
The goal of the Cancer Resource Center is to help anyone -- regardless
of where they live or where they are getting their health care -- to obtain
the information they need to cope with a cancer diagnosis.
Image Enhancement Center
It’s not frivolous to care about your appearance during cancer treatment;
looking good is part of feeling good. Our Image Enhancement Center aims
to help you cope with the appearance-related effects of cancer.
Cancer Classes & Support Groups
No one understands the challenges, fears and experiences related to a cancer
diagnosis and treatment better than others who’ve been through the
same thing. We offer a variety of support groups for people with cancer
and their loved ones.
Cancer Lectures, Events & Webinars
From an anti-cancer cookbook, to community-wide events surrounding Breast
Cancer Awareness month, to educational programs on cancer prevention and
treatment, we offer ongoing lectures, workshops and programs to educate
our community about cancer.
We believe that the term “survivorship” doesn’t just
describe being alive, but also means achieving your optimal level of health
and well-being. At Torrance Memorial, we are committed to providing support,
encouragement and, when you need it, the care that helps you achieve those goals.
