The mission of the Wellness Community, a non-profit organization, is to help cancer patients to recover to the greatest extent possible.

It is a place where cancer patients learn to fight for their recovery on the psychological and social front along with their doctors and health-care team.

The Wellness Community is conducting a drive to raise $200,000 to start a center in Anne Arundel County.

Once the Wellness Community site is opened, cancer patients will be able to come in for free support groups, lectures and presentations on stress management, nutrition, pain control, relaxation techniques and biofeedback as well as other techniques patients can use to fight their cancer actively.

Group meetings will be offered where participants may consider new and different methods for coping with the physical and emotional problems associated with their illness.

The board of directors, which is made up of 16 doctors and professionals will have its next meeting at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday, July 10, at the Champion Realty Training Center, 541 Baltimore-Annapolis Blvd., Severna Park.
