Cancer Support Community Atlanta is the local chapter of the world's largest nonprofit provider of psychosocial oncology programs. Our mission is simple: help people affected by cancer enhance their health and well-being by giving them support, education, and hope.
Since opening our doors to Atlanta in 1997, we have provided cancer patients and their support teams with opportunities to learn, exercise, and socialize in a home-like setting. We have a valuable affiliation with Northside Hospital Cancer Institute, and our facilities and programs are open without charge to all people affected by cancer.
In April, we invite participants to bring a new, baffling, or recurring dream with them to class. We will explore dreams using creative writing and simple forms of art.
Enjoy exercising in the serenity of nature while also spending time with some of your CSC friends. The class meets at the Chattahoochee Nature Center, where walkers complete a mile-long, leisurely paced walk. If the weather is inclement, an indoor facility will be available.
Genetic Counselor from Northside Hospital’s Hereditary Cancer Program, Katie Lang, explores the latest in cancer genetics. She also discusses newly discovered genes, the cost and coverage of testing, and the importance of genetic testing.
