  • About

    Cancer Support Community San Francisco Bay Area provides comprehensive integrative care — including counseling, support groups, nutrition, exercise and patient education programs — for people with cancer and their families or caregivers. Our services enable cancer patients to partner with their treatment team to manage their treatment and recovery most effectively, increase their chances for survival, reduce their chances of recurrence, and provide for the highest possible quality of life.

    We never turn anyone away, and all of our services are always provided free of charge in order to be readily accessible to people facing cancer in their time of need. We now serve 2,000 cancer patients and their families each year.

    All of our programs and services are evidence-based to positively impact cancer treatment outcomes and/or immune system functioning, and they are all delivered by professionals who are licensed or certified in their area of expertise. Our main center is in Walnut Creek. We also provide services in local medical centers and in several other community locations throughout the Bay Area.

    Cancer Support Community San Francisco Bay Area was founded in 1990 as The Wellness Community San Francisco East Bay. Our founder, Shannon McGowan, had previously served as the Program Director for the first Wellness Community, based in West Los Angeles. We are part of the national network of Cancer Support Community's, but operate as an independent nonprofit organization so all of the funds we raise stays in our community.
