Mission Statement

"To empower patients, caregivers, and healthcare professionals through a one-stop cancer resource from diagnosis through treatment, by way of multi-organizational collaboration." - BCS

Description

Boston Cancer Support is a non-profit in Massachusetts that was created for all who have been touched by cancer-whether you’re a patient, friend, caregiver, or healthcare professional. We function both online and within communities. The web presence provides information at the state, region, city and town level, such as financial aid opportunities, resources for clinical trials, free or subsidized lodging, support groups to fit various needs, and free transportation to treatments. Boston Cancer Support also runs two Collective Impact Programs:

The CancerCollaborative(tm) provides professional development and networking opportunities, along with resources and tools to maintain partnerships. The conferences are designed for patient navigators, nurses, social workers, community health workers, and organizations that support cancer patients and their families. Continuing education credits are provided to nurses and social workers through our partnerships with the American Cancer Society, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, and the American Lung Association of the Northeast.

The Treatment Transport program aids in funding rides to the many patients who need help getting to and from treatments. Our most recent partnership is with Lyft.
