Cancer Support Community (formerly known as The Wellness Community) provides services, support and education for anyone facing cancer.
All of our programs are always provided free of charge.
We serve cancer patients, survivors, family members, friends and other caregivers. We help people to improve their health and quality of life — to live longer and to live better.
We serve people dealing with any type of cancer, from newly diagnosed to long-term survivors. We also provide support for their family members and other caregivers. Almost every household has been affected by cancer, and all experts expect the incidence of cancer to continue to rise for the next several years. We have served hundreds of people from Lafayette in recent years. You and your loved ones will be welcome to receive support and attend programs at CSC, when it becomes your turn to face cancer.
