Support Cancer Support Services Through the Month of December!

Cancer Support Services of Taos needs your support to keep our program viable to assist our friends and neighbors. Giving Tuesday is November 30th, but we encourage you to donate through the month of December.

 

Cancer Support Services exists to serve the needs of people with cancer, beyond their clinical treatment. We connect them with trusted local, state and national services to help meet basic needs, ease stress, and promote healing while also supporting tangible needs that arise due to treatments being outside our local community.

We serve area residents from early in their diagnosis up to one year after their last treatment. Our program is funded solely through grants, fundraising and generous donations.

Services Include:

  • Health care navigation
  • Support groups
  • Grief and loss support
  • Fitness, health, and cancer coaching
  • Massage, yoga, acupuncture, and other modalities
  • Assistance with transportation costs, lodging, and food

Donate:

Cancer Support Services is funded by grants and donations. Due to Covid 19 Public Health orders, we modified our 2 annual fundraisers to virtual platforms in 2020.  June is our 5K walk “For the Health of It” where you can do your walk/run wherever you would like to the weekend of the event and post pictures to our Facebook page!  Our 2021 plans will be posted soon to our website!  Then in October we have multiple events including Zumba and Yoga groups we did virtually in 2020 and hopefully this year we will be able to provide both virtually and face to face! Also in October, local restaurants participate in supporting CSS by donating part of their proceeds on selected days of the month.  Be watching for what restaurants on what days in 2021 so you can enjoy great food and contribute to the well-being of those in our community who are going through cancer!

Donations can be given at any time through this website or by sending a check to: Cancer Support Services, 413 Sipapu Street, Taos, NM 87571

The purpose of the Support Group is to provide a safe place where people affected by cancer can support each other, develop friendships, share ideas, and thoughts while learning coping skills in a non-judgmental caring atmosphere.

CSS Support groups provide:

  • – A sense of belonging reducing isolation
  • – Empathy by being understood by others who have had cancer
  • – A safe place for expressing feelings, experiences and fears and
  • – Activities and discussion that allow for all to relax and feel at ease – helping to build warmth as a space for a sense of humor and positive thoughts for healing
  • – This self-help group is facilitated by trained people with a personal experience of cancer. It is open to the cancer patients and their families or other caregivers.
Road to Recovery

This is an American Cancer Society service program that provides transportation for cancer patients to their potentially lifesaving cancer treatments and home again.
