Welcome to Community Connect - March 6, 2023

I would like to extend our heartfelt gratitude to all of our generous supporters during the 2022 calendar year. Your gifts help people in our community have a safe, comforting place to find support and essential information during their cancer treatment and recovery.


Last year we served 1,855 individuals through 703 support group sessions, 99 healthy lifestyle classes, 33 educational workshops, and 671 individual and family counseling sessions. ALL of our services were provided at no cost to participants. See our 2022 impact our community made possible by clicking here.


As this year unfolds, we will continue our work to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. We are thankful to have you as part of the CSCVVSB family and hope you will consider us in your 2023 planning.


Thank you for believing in our mission and making a difference!

With gratitude,

Monica Merryman

Executive Director
