Community and Support

Creating community is essential to receiving the support and hope people facing cancer need to navigate their journey and thrive in mind, body, spirit, and life.

You have cancer...

What now? WNC has many choices to receive clinical cancer care. But, where do you go for support?

One Caring Place

Imagine having that ONE caring place to go where those touched by cancer are connected with services, programs, resources, and each other so that no one journeys cancer alone. A welcoming, uplifting space providing a compassionate professional support team and a selection of programs, free of charge.

Support and Community
