Support in Uncertain Times

Individuals impacted by cancer know how stressful it can be to cope with uncertainty. Change and uncertainty is a commom contributor to stress. Sometimes it is helpful to find comfort in something that is constant and reliable. The Cancer Support Center staff would like our participants to think of us as a constant source of support in an uncertain and ever-changing world. We will continue to offer support and wellness programs in a safe manner.

Please join us this fall for some old favorites as well as exciting new programs!
