2019 Annual Report
At the Cancer Support Community, we strive to provide the gold standard in patient care, and that priority comes with a commitment to innovation.
As a testament to our commitment to innovation, we are pleased to share our 2019 Annual Report.
This report includes videos, updates on our achievements and activities, links to resources, plus a variety of ways to donate, connect, and get involved. In short, it is a different way of telling a story of profound impact that our generous supporters make possible.
As we look back at 2019, we must also admit that this year has come with unprecedented challenges. If we have learned anything from our cancer patients though, it is the value of resilience. In addition to marking many milestones we achieved in 2019, the report also shows the ways we are responding to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 and adapting as the demand for our free support and navigation services continues to increase.
For example, we have extended our Cancer Support Helpline® hours to stay open seven days a week, giving individuals more opportunities to connect with our licensed and experienced healthcare professionals. The volume of calls this year is up 80 percent from the same period in 2019.
As you read these stories and reports, know that it is the steadfast commitment of our community of supporters that makes it possible for us to be a relentless ally to all people living with cancer – providing free, patient-focused support and navigation services during all stages of the cancer experience.
Together, we are proving that Community is Stronger than Cancer.
