Five Reasons to Join the Cancer Experience Registry

Wednesday, August 9, 2017

The Cancer Support Community's Research and Training Institute provides a unique and explorative opportunity for people to share their personal experiences with cancer through The Cancer Experience Registry. The Registry collects stories and creates a collection of patient voices to exchange information and resources. It helps connect people touched by cancer, and it uses information from participants to learn more about what quality of life means to patients. By being a part of the Registry, all cancer patients—at any point of their cancer journey—and caregivers can contribute to the cancer community.

The Importance of Psychosocial Care for Cancer Survivors

Wednesday, June 7, 2017

Because of improving prevention, detection, and treatment, cancer survivors are a growing population. In 2016, there were more than 15.5 million cancer survivors living in the U.S. Here at CSC, we know that survivors face unique, ongoing challenges that many people do not understand.

For All The Caregivers

Wednesday, November 16, 2016

In 2015, President Barack Obama proclaimed November National Family Caregivers Month to recognize the hard work and dedication of all the selfless caregivers around the country.

Caregivers can be spouses, partners, children, relatives or friends who help, care and support those living with cancer.

Make This a #CSCEmpower-ing Summer

Wednesday, June 24, 2015

How much of a difference can someone make in a month?

That’s the question we’re asking you this July. For one month, CSC will be displaying a banner in a window at Rockefeller Plaza, New York to inform people of the free services CSC offers to people affected by cancer.

The banner reads, “Everyone knows someone touched by cancer. I am a…” to show how no matter where we live or who we are, there is one experience that is universal: we’ve all known someone affected by cancer that has needed support, and we’ve all wanted to help them.

Now, you have the power to make an actual difference in your loved ones’ lives. The more people know about the resources CSC provides, the more we can help ease the physical and emotional toll that cancer takes.

Big Boys Don't Cry Over Skinned Knees

Wednesday, June 10, 2015

June is National Men’s Health Month, and it’s a great time to raise awareness for men’s self-care and support. The leading causes of death for men in America are heart disease and cancer. Lung cancer and skin cancer are the leading causes of cancer related deaths in America. Often because of the way men are raised, it can be easy to miss opportunities to prevent or diagnose these cancers due to societal pressure on men to endure pain and hardship rather than ask for help.
