Mission statement: To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
The Cancer Support Community is an international nonprofit dedicated to providing support, education, and hope to people affected by cancer. Likely the largest employer of psychosocial oncology mental health professionals in the United States, CSC offers a variety 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. These support services are available through a network of professionally-led, community-based centers, hospitals, community oncology practices, as well as online, so that no one has to face cancer alone.
In July 2009, The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club Worldwide joined forces to become the Cancer Support Community. By helping to complete the Cancer Care Plan, CSC optimizes patient care by providing essential, but often overlooked, services including support groups, counseling, education, and healthy lifestyle programs. Today, CSC provides the highest quality emotional and social support through a network of more than 50 local affiliates, 100 satellite locations, and online.
