The InspireLIFE BC initiative is the first of its kind in North America, providing integrative cancer care through the LIFE Program, a locally delivered community-based workshop. Follow-up care and support continue through specialized integrative clinical services delivered through a new and innovative online program. It has been carefully designed to help those with a diagnosis of cancer regain control of their lives by empowering them to play an active role in the development of their own personalized cancer care and wellness plan.

The InspireLIFE BC program is for people living with cancer and their supporters, family and friends. It engages people in their own health care by supporting recovery and survival through healthful nutrition, appropriate exercise, emotional support and stress reduction. This is all safely integrated with standard cancer treatments. Program cost is $195 for those with a diagnosis of cancer and $95 for their supporters.
