What is the Cancer Support Community

There’s a reason cancer is called “The Big C”, it’s because it’s so giant and all encompassing to everyone involved, there’s no way it can be something regular, something lower case. And there’s no reason to have to deal with everything it entails by yourself. With the Cancer Support Community in Bozeman you have a resource, and a group of people who know what you’re going through, no matter how you are directly or indirectly impacted. They can help navigate everything involved through education, support groups, activities, and more. Stop by the office on 102 S. 11th Ave., and find out exactly what the Cancer Support Community is for yourself. Whether you want to volunteer or you’re looking for help, this is a friendly, supportive, informative place to be.

Non-Profit Support

Getting the help and support you need doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. In fact, the Cancer Support Community is a non-profit, national organization that provides its professional-level education and support free of charge. At the CSC you will get amazing support groups not just for the person with cancer, but for anyone who loves them and needs support as well. Cancer is not a singular disease. It doesn’t just touch one person, it touches everyone involved, and there are professionals who can help you through this journey, for better or for worse.

Regain Control of Yourself and Your Process

One of the most important things the Cancer Support Community does is help people learn the “vital skills to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation and restore hope”. Often an illness or disease can make those affected by it feel so lonely, and unable to do anything about it. Like being in a sandtrap in the middle of the desert. But the CSC can help show you how this is not the case. You are not alone, and there are things you can do to become in charge of yourself again, and in charge of your attitude. Cancer does not define you – you do that.

Volunteer Opportunities

Even if you are not affected by cancer right now, but still feel the draw to help those who are, the Cancer Support Community welcomes all different kinds of volunteers. Everything from basket making, to receptionist, to hands-on support is appreciated and needed! Volunteers help keep this amazing organization running, so please call today!
