Cancer Resource Centers in New England

New England Resource Centers for Cancer Patients and Their Families Here is a list of all resource centers in New England for cancer patients and their families. Here is where you will learn about our programs, local resources, and more ...

A resource center, in partnership with a cancer care center, offers patients, families, and the public current information about cancer, American Cancer Society programs, and local community resources.

Volunteers assist visitors in obtaining information about prevention/detection, treatment guidelines, and support groups. Those using the resource center will be able to listen to, or read prerecorded personal stories and discussions among survivors and caregivers via the Cancer Survivors’ Network. Wigs are available at some centers for those without insurance.
