“The Cancer Support Community has become my anchor, my refuge, my special place to refuel spiritually, mentally, as well as physically, my source of the latest cancer treatments available, my source of upcoming cancer-related seminars, and a place where I will be treated as a special friend. WOW!”
– Peggy P.
“There are times when objectivity and rational thought aren’t enough, when the dark thoughts lurking in the back of my mind want to take over at center stage. At such times, what has worked for me has been to be in the company of caring people who understand the emotional component of dealing with a frightening disease. The caring, the support, and the understanding that I have received at The Cancer Support Community have been of immeasurable value to me as I have worked to maintain a sense of quality and balance in my life. I believe that The Cancer Support Community has been of material value to me in my fight with prostate cancer. I am an unabashed advocate.”
– Bernie D.
“It was a blessing that we learned about The Cancer Support Community. I have realized that sickness is not only physical; the emotions, the attitudes, the whole being is involved. The treatment given to a sick person will only be effective if the patient is at peace with herself and is willing to get healed. It was good that I had the support group, the writing workshop, the Qi Gong, and the anger workshop. They strengthened me and supported me all the way. I am very grateful to The Cancer Support Community. I felt I was not alone in the process. I hope we can organize a support group like yours, or if we already have one in the Philippines, then I can participate and share the learning that I got from The Cancer Support Community.”
– Lilian P.
“The Cancer Support Community in Redondo Beach. She attended a group for women with Newly Diagnosed Breast Cancer, and I attended a support group for the family members. We were both greatly helped by the group experience. These groups were led by qualified and caring leaders. There is no charge to participants.”
– Ira R.
“The Cancer Support Community helped me sustain a positive attitude during my cancer experience. Supported by a unique group of peers (other cancer patients) and a dedicated staff, The Cancer Support Community created a place where I happily participated in a variety of activities including a support group, Qui Gong classes, relaxation and visualization sessions, easy exercise, journal writing classes, lectures and parties. The journey to reclaim my health became an upbeat one, due in large measure, to the influence of TWC.”
– Diane B.
“I stopped sitting at home saying, ‘Why me?’ or being depressed thinking I was the only one. I began to crawl to The Cancer Support Community like someone in search of an oasis in the desert. My car couldn’t get me there fast enough.”
– Gilda Radner from her book, “It’s Always Something .”
“The Cancer Support Community is a place where I can go and be totally free to be myself, to express my feelings, my fears, anything and everything with people who truly understand. It is where I go for education and to release stress.”
– Belinda R.
“I can’t say enough about The Cancer Support Community. There is nothing like being in a room full of people going through exactly what you are going through.”
– Ruth L.
