"I stopped sitting at home saying 'why me?' I began to crawl to The Wellness Community like someone in search of an oasis in the desert. My
car couldn't get there fast enough to be nourished by other cancer patients and to know that
I was not alone."
- Gilda Radner from her book
"It's Always Something"
cancer support, education and hope
You are not alone. Every day, people with cancer and their loved ones find support, education and hope at Cancer Support Community Central New Jersey. In a home-like setting we offer professionally-led support groups, educational programs, nutritional and healthy cooking workshops, healthy life-style programs, resources and opportunities to socialize with other individuals who understand the impact of cancer. There is no charge for the programs. Our programs and services empower the individual diagnosed with cancer and the caregiver to take an active role in their journey with, through, and beyond cancer diagnosis.
