Our mission at The Cancer Support Community Delaware is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. We are the only organization in Delaware dedicated exclusively to helping people cope with and manage the emotional aspect of cancer. We also focus on the cancer participants' family and/or caregivers, including children and teenagers. Our professionally led programs provide emotional support, education and hope. Best of all, all of our programs are offered free of charge. In addition, all funds raised in Sussex County stay in Sussex County to help our neighbors.
