The Hearst Cancer Resource Center is a one-of-a-kind resource on the Central Coast for those living with cancer and their families, where all services are provided at no charge. The HCRC provides the supportive and educational services necessary for cancer patients to understand their disease, tolerate treatment, and maintain dignity and quality of life throughout all aspects of their cancer experience. Located at the award winning, not-for-profit French Hospital Medical Center in San Luis Obispo, this unique resource aims to bring a sense of peace, calm, strength and positive energy to all who visit.
The HCRC is staffed by oncology professionals and houses the latest information on cancer treatment options, nutrition and stress reduction. The center hosts everything from laughing classes, to nutrition lectures, to yoga, and support groups. Since opening its doors in 2008, HCRC has experienced more than 40,000 visits and contacts from cancer patients and family members, as well as many community organizations.
