CancerCare programs include counseling and support groups, education, financial assistance, and practical help. Counseling is provided by oncology social workers and is available on the telephone and face-to-face (available at offices in New York City, Long Island, New Jersey, and Connecticut).

In the workshops, leading experts in oncology provide the most current information. CancerCare also provides free publications, some in Spanish.
