Cancer Support Community Central NJ: So that no one faces cancer alone
Cancer Support Community is here to ensure that no one faces cancer alone. When people walk through this door of this farmhouse, you can see the transformation that takes place by just being able to connect with one of our social workers or to participate in a program. Just the understanding that they’re not alone and what that does to somebody.
It does affect the entire family in different ways. So, you know, allowing that each member of the family to come in and receive the support that they need I think that’s the most important thing about CSC (Cancer Support Community Central NJ).
Our social work team provides individuals with the tools that they need, the support they need, in a sense of community that they need to empower individuals and to strengthen them into taking actions they need to be able to advocate for the best healthcare. No matter who you are, no matter where you are, or what part of your journey you’re in, you can turn to this organization, and at no charge, receive the services that you need for you and your family to thrive in the face of a life-threatening cancer diagnosis.
