Introduction to CSC-SCT
The Cancer Support Community of Southern Connecticut (CSC-SCT) is an affiliate in development of the Cancer Support Community – an international network of independently chartered nonprofits that provide professional programs of emotional support, education and hope for people impacted by cancer so that no one faces cancer alone.
Our robust program of psychosocial support is open free of charge to those with a cancer diagnosis as well as their family, friends, caregivers and loved ones.
Participants are welcome for our support groups, classes, lectures, social events and more…or can simply drop in for a cup of tea or conversation with other members.
Why We are Fighting to Bring CSC to Connecticut
Stories from our Board of Directors
My mom is a breast cancer survivor. She was first diagnosed after I was born about 45 years ago…I wonder how my dad did it? How did he hold everything together when my mom was sick? -Jen
When I was first diagnosed at age 38, I had three children between the ages of 1 and 7…although there were enough places to turn to for medical attention, there was nowhere to go for the emotional help I needed… I spent hours every day searching the Internet for support – for me, as well as my kids. -Rose
I was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer…I always knew I would be beat it but my wife and mother weren’t as sure. They probably worried more about me than I did about myself. They needed somewhere or someplace to turn to other than my doctors and the internet to be able to talk through their worries and concerns…CSC-SCT can be that place for families, friends and cancer patients. –Bob

CANCER EXPERIENCE REGISTRY
The Cancer Support Community’s (CSC) Research and Training Institute has created the Cancer Experience Registry to identify and advance the understanding of the emotional and social needs of people who have been diagnosed with cancer.
It is estimated that there will be nearly 1.7 million new cases of cancer diagnosed in the United States this year and more than 13.6 million cancer survivors. With more people being diagnosed with cancer and more people living longer with cancer, there is an urgent need to recognize and identify the challenges people face throughout the cancer journey, at diagnosis, during treatment and when the treatment is over. The Cancer Experience Registry was developed to tackle this very challenge.
By joining the Cancer Experience Registry, people can help change the experience for the millions of people who live with cancer every day. Additionally, participants will benefit from regular updates on the Cancer Experience Registry and other cancer news, access to existing support resources for people impacted by cancer and opportunities to take part in other studies throughout the year.
Participating is easy! Sign up at www.CancerExperienceRegistry.org, answer a set of survey questions, and provide updates on a yearly basis.
