THE STORY:

The Cancer Support Center is here to give strength, guidance and support to anyone living with a cancer diagnosis, as well as to their loved ones. We do this as a community-based, volunteer-driven, donor-supported organization. Our programs, resources and services are always delivered by professional therapists, counselors, nutritionists, and experts; and, are provided in a warm, welcoming and nurturing setting at no cost to participants.

 

Center History:

In 1992, Joan Hopkins and Judy Svancarek experienced the challenges of cancer, and realized the need for emotional support for themselves, their family and friends. Cancer had changed their lives forever and they had nowhere to turn. They had seen an example of support centers and were inspired by the positive attitude of the survivors that attended the educational lectures and support groups. Joan and Judy listened to doctors and nurses and researched reports that attested to the positive effects that support centers had on the immune system. They realized that this was not only a place that made cancer patients and their loved ones feel better, filled them with hope and gave them purpose, but it also increased their chances of surviving.

In efforts to gather community support and make this dream a reality, Joan and Judy banned together with Judith Hanzelin, an oncology nurse, Carol VanTuyle, who worked in hospice, Jennifer Fallick and Patricia McDonald, who had lost husbands to cancer, to become the driving force behind what is now known as The Cancer Support Center.
