Providing Support Services And Free Transportation To Cancer Patients
Boston Cancer Support’s mission is to improve the quality of life for people affected by cancer in Massachusetts. Our vision is to equip patients, families, caregivers, and healthcare professionals with local information, resources, and collaborative communities that help them navigate the medical, psychosocial, and practical challenges of cancer – affording them the best chance at optimal health outcomes. Our web presence provides information at the state, region, city, and town level, such as financial aid opportunities, clinical trials, free or subsidized lodging, and support groups. Our Treatment Transport program offers free transportation to medical treatments and support groups through our partnership with Lyft. Our Randi Friedman Wellness program provides integrative therapies such as restorative yoga, gentle Pilates, meditation, and stress management to those who would otherwise not have the opportunity due to financial constraints.
