Cancer Bridges provides caring communities of support for all those impacted by cancer through a comprehensive calendar of nearly 200 programs and services each month, all at no cost to our members. Anyone impacted by cancer will benefit from the social, emotional, and physical health and wellness programs offered; this includes those with a cancer diagnosis, those who have a loved one with cancer, or have experienced the loss of a loved one due to cancer.
At Cancer Bridges, we offer a wide variety of emotional, social, and health and wellness programs specifically designed to meet complex needs and address the unique journeys of those we serve. Programs include short-term supportive counseling, support groups, education and community connections, and comprehensive family and youth programming. Grief programming is available for adults and pediatric bereavement. Our members also seek social and physical wellness programs, where support and connections are gained.
Cancer knows no boundaries. It does not discriminate by age, gender, race, or socio-economic status, and continues to impact our region at an increasing rate of incidence. Having cancer affects the physical, social, emotional parts of life, known as the psychosocial effect of cancer. As many as three out of every four people with cancer experience symptoms of psychological distress or cognitive concerns, which can negatively affect their overall well-being and health outcomes. At Cancer Bridges, we recognize that each cancer journey extends beyond medical treatments and acknowledge the significance of addressing psychological, emotional, and social well-being as a complement to healthcare. As we continue to welcome hundreds of new members each year, the need for our support groups and short-term supportive counseling continues to rise. Our programming is designed to help members strengthen their mental health and well-being, increase their coping skills, and increase their social interactions.
