“To ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community.”

How We’re Accomplishing Our Mission

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.

Cancer Support Community Montana is one of 41 chapters of CSC and is located in Bozeman, Montana. We provide a full range of support programs for people with cancer and their loved ones in a comfortable home-like setting, completely free of charge. We offer drop-in and on-going support groups, networking groups for people with specific types of cancer, educational workshops, exercise activities, stress management sessions, lectures by experts in the field of oncology, and social gatherings-all with laughter, joy and hope.

Our Aspen Story

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.
