The Wilson Cancer Resource Center is dedicated to lightening the burden of a cancer diagnosis by providing patients and their families with resources and assistance throughout their continuum of care.

The Wilson Cancer Resource Center (WCRC) is located in the Physician Office Building, part of the Beaumont Medical Center, Sterling Heights on the Beaumont, Troy east campus.
