The Cancer Support Community of Central Ohio invites cancer patients, families and the general public to become aquainted with the nonprofit as they settle into their new offices. Today's announcement from the CSC:
Ohio Department of Health statistics indicate one in three Ohioans will be affected by cancer. The good news? More people than ever are "living healthy" with, through and beyond cancer.
Central Ohio residents touched by cancer can discover support, education and hope at Cancer Support Community Central Ohio (CSC CO) as the local non-profit officially introduces community members to its "new home" at 1200 Old Henderson Road, Columbus, Thursday, Nov. 14, 2013.
Staff, facilitators, board members, cancer patients and survivors will be on hand from 4 to 7 p.m., with a program slated for 6:15 p.m., hosted by NBC4/WCMH-TV Reporter Robyn Haines serving as emcee.
Cancer Support Community will showcase its comprehensive educational and support programs, which are provided at no cost to anyone affected by cancer. Attendees will have the opportunity to experience cooking, nutrition, exercise, support and networking, and wellness programs that Cancer Support Community offers to anyone affected by cancer, including patients, caregivers, survivors, and loved ones.
All Cancer Support Community programs are led by experienced, licensed professionals trained in the Cancer Support Community "patient empowerment" model – giving patients, survivors and loved ones the skills and resources they need to play an active role in their cancer care and to optimize quality of life.
"Cancer affects not just the person diagnosed, but also family members, caregivers and friends," explained Bev Soult, president & CEO, Cancer Support Community. "We're very proud of our new facility which gives us the capability to offer complete cancer care programs and services to support anyone affected by cancer."
Valet parking will be available. Directions and further information can be found at www.cancersupportohio.org.
