LAUNCH, the Sanford Wellness Center program for cancer survivors, allows you to achieve specific fitness goals while receiving treatment for cancer and for life after cancer. We understand that priorities drive behavior and successful plans of exercise cannot survive without a well-defined plan supporting your personal needs. Cancer survivors will receive a 1-month free membership to Sanford Wellness Center.
