The Cancer Support Community Parters with Thoughtful Human
cancer is a 24/7 experience for patients, families, and caregivers. we know because we've lived it, and we exist to help you find honest ways to communicate through it. but we also know that cards don't cure cancer, and we want to bring you the education, resources, and community to take the next step and get the support that you and your loved one(s) need. as such, we are so incredibly excited to announce our partnership with the Cancer Support Community.
the Cancer Support Community (CSC) is a global non-profit network of 175 locations, including CSC and Gilda's Club centers, hospital and clinic partnerships, and satellite locations that deliver more than $50 million in free support services to patients and families.
in addition, CSC administers a toll-free helpline and produces award-winning educational resources that, together with the locations, reach more than one million people each year. formed in 2009 by the merger of The Wellness Community and Gilda’s Club, CSC also conducts cutting-edge research on the emotional, psychological, and financial journey of cancer patients. in addition, CSC advocates at all levels of government for policies to help individuals whose lives have been disrupted by cancer.
in January 2018, CSC welcomed Denver-based nonprofit MyLifeLine.org, a digital community that includes 35,000 patients, caregivers, and their supporters that will enable CSC to scale its digital services in an innovative, groundbreaking way.
“Ali’s personal story as a caregiver and how it inspired Thoughtful Human aligns with our mission to ensure that no one faces cancer alone,” said Kim Thiboldeaux, CEO of the Cancer Support Community. “The Thoughtful Human cards are a way to start a conversation and build connections between patients, caregivers, and all people affected by a cancer diagnosis.”
