Cancer Support Community

Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Center

Monmouth Medical Center has partnered with Cancer Support Community (CSC) to carry on CSC's mission to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. This collaboration will fully incorporate CSC programs and services into the hospital at both its main campus in Long Branch and its southern campus in Lakewood.

Formerly located in Eatontown, the Monmouth County-based Cancer Support Community is part of an international non-profit organization dedicated to providing support, education and hope to people affected by cancer. Individuals affected by cancer are given an opportunity to enhance their health and well-being through participation in professionally led programs of emotional support, relaxation, exercise and education.

Anyone who is affected by cancer — the patient, family, friends and caregivers — can access our free program of support. To ensure that no one faces cancer alone, there is no charge for these programs and they're available to all cancer patients in Monmouth and Ocean counties, regardless of where they are being treated.
