Information about our programs.
If you or a loved one are living with cancer, you are not alone. Three out of four families are affected by cancer. It's a difficult time. Dealing with treatment and its side effects can be a struggle for both patients and families. Juggling family, professional and financial responsibilities can be overwhelming. Coping with the emotional burden can be exhausting.
Too often the practical and medical issues push the psychological issues aside. Patients often keep their deepest fears and worries to themselves, reluctant to share thoughts of hopelessness with family members who are supporting and caring for them. Family members will keep some of their deepest emotions to themselves as well, protecting the patient from feelings of anxiety, despair, and even anger.
There is good news: Cancer Support Community can help. It's a place where both patients, family members and loved ones will find support, education and hope. Our support groups address emotional issues for patients and caregivers. Educational workshops answer important questions in a non-clinical setting. Stress management programs enhance health and well being. Every program is offered free of charge.
This is a community where support and friendship inspire hope. It provides a home-like environment where people with cancer, their families, and friends can come to gather information, support, and learn tools that may be helpful in fighting cancer. Research has shown that people who receive social support --- in addition to standard treatment--- can have longer, less anxiety-laden lives than those without such a core, supportive community. All programs are free of charge.
