We are lucky to have the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center nearby. Folks travel from all over the country to take advantage of the UMCCC clinical trials.

The cancer center treats body and mind through activities such as guided imagery, art and music therapy. Harpists or pianists often perform in the waiting rooms as part of the Gifts of Art program. Patients enjoy a weaving loom, a library, a kitchen stocked with coffee and snacks, a fish tank, valet parking, 50 cent parking (must be validated in the cancer center), and a friendly, helpful staff. Cancer patients and their families can stay in touch with the latest news with Thrive, the UMCCC newsletter.
