At Cancer Support Community Montana our mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.
Cancer Support Community (CSC) is a national non-profit organization dedicated to providing emotional support, education and hope for people with cancer and their loved ones, free of charge.
Through participation in professionally-led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body programs, utilizing the Patient Active Concept, people affected by cancer can learn vital skills to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation, and restore hope – regardless of the stage of disease.
Programs and resources are provided from the point of diagnosis, throughout treatment and survivorship, and through end of life – including support groups, yoga, cooking classes, hiking groups, retreats, and more – completely free-of-charge.
YOUTH & FAMILY PROGRAMS
Our Youth and Family programs are intended to provide a place of support and sense of community for the whole family.
CSC offers emotional support through support groups, informal connection groups, and individual short-term counseling.
Cancer Support Community creates a research-based education plan to serve cancer survivors and their loved ones.
