Supporting cancer patients and their families with personalized counseling, assistance, resources and education

Cancer CAREpoint is dedicated to transforming support for cancer patients, families and caregivers in Silicon Valley through personalized, one-on-one Counseling, Assistance, Resources and Education. We are the only local organization in Silicon Valley that provides support for all patients, regardless of where they receive treatment, their cancer type, or ability to pay.

Cancer CAREpoint’s free non-medical support programs include nutrition classes and private consults, supportive counseling, information and referral, exercise and yoga classes, educational workshops, art therapy, guided imagery and meditation for stress reduction and pain management, healing touch, a wig bank, and support groups for patients, caregivers and teens with parents with cancer.

The overall goal of Cancer CAREpoint’s programs is to improve the health-related quality of life of cancer patients and their families and reduce the psychological and social problems created by a diagnosis of cancer. We serve more than 1,000 cancer patients and caregivers annually.
