The Cancer Support Community-Benjamin Center (CSC-BC) is the founding facility of what is now the largest cancer support organization worldwide, the Cancer Support Community. Celebrating our 30th anniversary this year, our programs span the continuum of psychosocial needs from basic information sharing, education on complex cancer related topics, support groups and individual counseling, to a comprehensive stress reduction & exercise program.
Through our programs, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation and restore hope, regardless of the stage of their disease. All services at The Cancer Support Community-Benjamin Center are always free of charge.
Our professionally-led programs are based on peer reviewed, evidence-based research and utilize CSC-BC founder Dr. Harold Benjamin’s Patient Active™ concept. More broadly, for people with cancer and their loved ones, this concept can be called being Life Active. Being Life Active means that one takes specific steps to become empowered, to make informed decisions about one’s physical and emotional health, and to take actions to improve one’s quality of life.
