The Cancer Support Community of the Greater Lehigh Valley (CSC) is a national nonprofit organization that provides support, education and hope to people with cancer and their loved ones. Through participation in professionally led support groups, educational workshops and mind/body classes utilizing the “Patient Active” concept, people affected by cancer learn vital skills that enable them to regain control, reduce isolation, and restore hope regardless of the stage of disease. Most importantly, CSC provides a home-like setting for people fighting cancer to connect with and learn from each other.
