CancerCare

Founded in 1944, CancerCare® is the leading national organization providing free, professional support services and information to help people manage the emotional, practical and financial challenges of cancer. Our comprehensive services include counseling and support groups over the phone, online and in-person, educational workshops, publications and financial and co-payment assistance. All CancerCare services are provided by oncology social workers and world-leading cancer experts.

A cancer diagnosis and treatment can constitute a trauma for many people. Knowing about the ways in which trauma affects us can help providers and loved ones deliver better care to those undergoing cancer treatments.
