New Support Groups in 2018!
2017 proved to be an exciting year for CSCP as we saw a significant increase in our service hours, meaning that our participants were using our services more often. As such, there is a demand for additional programs and support services on our calendar. One of our goals for 2018 is expanding our program offerings. In the next few months, we will be introducing three new support groups to meet the needs of our ever-expanding family at CSC. If you are interested in learning more or joining any one of these groups, please call us at (626) 796-1083. Further details are below:
- Men’s Support Group
In this monthly networking group, men can connect discuss issues related to their diagnosis and survivorship. CSCP continues to offer support groups for women, and there has been an ongoing need for men to have their own space to process issues unique to them. This group is open to patients and survivors and will meet the second Monday of each month from 6 – 7:30 pm, starting on February 12th, 2017. As this is a monthly drop-in group, participants are welcome to continue attending their weekly support groups at CSCP in addition to the men's group.
- Young Adult Support Group
Young adults face issues distinct to their age group when dealing with cancer. This group is open to people who were diagnosed between the ages 18 – 35 and are currently facing a cancer diagnosis or are navigating survivorship post-treatment. Concerns surrounding fertility, career, finances, and survivorship often impact young adults in different ways than other age cohorts. As this is a monthly drop-in group, participants are welcome to continue attending their weekly support groups at CSCP in addition to the young adult group. This group will take place on the third Monday of each month, with a start date to be determined.
- Bereavement Group
With the addition of another bereavement group to our program schedule, there will be additional space for those who are looking for group support in their journey through grief. This group is available for those who are grieving the loss of a love one within the past 2 years due to cancer. This group will take place on Tuesday evenings from 6 - 7:30 pm, with a start date to be determined.
