For 28 years, CSCP has been helping people affected by cancer. Established in 1990, CSCP’s mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. All of CSCP’s programs are free of charge to individuals facing cancer, their families and caregivers.
Cancer Support Community Pasadena provides over 100 monthly education and stress management classes and workshops, in addition to 12 distinct weekly support groups that give patients, family and friends/caregivers, children and those bereaved coping skills and a safe environment in which to express their feelings and connect with others undergoing similar experiences.
Program participants are invited to attend one support group per week and unlimited stress management classes and educational workshops. All support groups are facilitated by licensed mental health professionals.
CSCP is part of an international not-for-profit organization founded by Dr. Harold Benjamin in 1982 to provide free support, education and hope to individuals impacted by cancer.
At the center of CSCP’s program philosophy is Dr. Benjamin’s Patient Active Concept, which defines a series of actions, behaviors and attitudes that people with cancer can utilize to improve their quality of life and enhance the possibility of recovery.
CSCP is located at 76 E. Del Mar Blvd., Suite 215, in Pasadena, on the second floor of the Pasadena Humane Society’s building. Call (626) 796-1083 with questions or visit CSCPasadena.org for a full listing of free program offerings.
