F.A.Q.

What does Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach do?

Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach offers free programs and classes that help cancer patients and their loved ones navigate the complex emotions and stresses that come with the diagnosis.  These programs have been proven to raise the spirits and quality of life of cancer patients, as well as help keep traditional medical treatments on track. Our psychosocial programs are just one part of the continuum of care we offer for those fighting cancer.

From physical wellness and strength-building classes like yoga and tai chi, to empathetic support groups with others who share your journey, at Cancer Support Community Redondo Beach, you will have a caring community of support to lean on during these challenging days.

Cancer Support Community doesn’t offer financial assistance, medical advice, services or referrals. We do, however, offer regular educational workshops and classes that can teach you about the disease and help prepare you for the road to recovery.

What does it cost?

Everything we offer cancer patients and their loved ones is completely free of charge. You will never be asked to pay for any support groups, classes or workshops. CSCRB is a nonprofit organization funded by generous individuals, corporate sponsors and foundations. We host several fundraising events per year to raise funds to pay for our programs and services.

How do I sign up?

The first step is to attend a welcome meeting where we’ll share more about our programs and services. Welcome meetings take place on Monday nights at 6:00 pm and Friday mornings at 11:00 am. You are welcome to drop-in for the welcome meeting and do not need to RSVP. You can also call or email with any questions: (310) 376-3550 or info@cscrb.org
