Description

The Cancer Support Community is an international non-profit dedicated to providing support, education and hope to people affected by cancer.

As the largest employer of psychosocial oncology mental health professionals in the United States, the organization offers a network of personalized services and education for all people affected by cancer. Its global network brings the highest quality cancer support to the millions of people touched by cancer. To ensure no one has to face cancer alone, these support services are available through a network of professionally led community-based centers, hospitals, community oncology practices and other non-profits, as well as online.

In July 2009, The Wellness Community and Gilda's Club joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community. Its mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. By helping to complete the cancer care plan, the Cancer Support Community continues to helps optimize patient care by providing essential, but often overlooked, services including support groups, counseling, education and healthy lifestyle programs. Today, the Cancer Support Community provides the highest quality emotional and social support through a network of nearly 50 local affiliates, more than 100 satellite locations and online. To find a community-based center in your area, visit www.cancersupportcommunity.org.
