Support Groups

Due to COVID, all CSC support groups are being held virtually

Our Support Groups provide an environment for people, who are affected by cancer, to meet regularly to sustain and encourage each other by sharing experiences. Check the calendar for the support group meetings.

** While our Zoom platform is HIPPA protected, due to public zoom link postings on our website calendar, we cannot ensure 100% privacy protection for exercise programs and educational talks.
