About The Cancer Support Center
The Cancer Support Center in Homewood, Ill. was formed in 1994, when six Southland women worked together to open a home-like center (with locations in Homewood and Mokena) for people in more than 70 Chicago Southland and Northwest Indiana communities.

The Center provides services free of charge to a diverse participant base including cancer patients, caregivers, children, teens and friends of the cancer patient. Having seen their ideas grow to fruition, several of the original "seed planters" still serve in day-to-day roles at The Cancer Support Center.

In addition to support groups, individual and family counseling sessions and The Center's comprehensive Resource Center, wellness programs are offered on a weekly basis. Participants enjoy yoga, qi gong, meditation, relaxation, massage therapy, Reiki and healing touch. On average, The Center staff responds to more than 300 calls or visits to the Homewood and Mokena locations.
