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.

Our beloved aspen trees are symbolic of our hopes for those affected by cancer. An aspen tree is, by itself, small and fragile. When brought together, aspen trees flourish in groves with one connected root system. This connection symbolizes the strength and unity we hope will flourish among cancer survivors and their loved ones with the assistance of Cancer Support Community Montana.
