With locations in Phoenix and Flagstaff, Cancer Support Community Arizona (CSCAZ), is the only nonprofit organization in Arizona to provide no-cost emotional support services to anyone impacted by cancer of any type throughout their cancer journey. Our bilingual (English/Spanish) services are crucial because, while cancer patients typically receive state-of-the-art medical treatment, effective cancer care also requires the integration of psychological and social services (like what CSCAZ provides) to identify and address issues associated with a cancer diagnosis and prognosis. Every day, CSCAZ offers professionally led support groups, educational workshops, and mind/body wellness programs so that people - STATEWIDE - affected by cancer can learn vital skills to regain control, reduce feelings of isolation, and restore hope.
