Your gift today can help us empower more patients, more families and everyone impacted by cancer.
The Cancer Support Community Mission is to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action and sustained by community. Locally, at Cancer Support Community Central Ohio, we offer evidence-based comprehensive cancer survivorship programming through a wide range of daily wellness and support activities along with a number of educational programs. So no one faces cancer alone.
Thanks to the Cancer Support Community I was able to speak to the people who had actually been through the treatments and were able to tell me exactly what it would be like… it’s the one place where I felt comfortable enough to share my own story.

Rays of Hope:
When people step through our glass front doors, the sun shines through to lift their spirits and remind them that cancer can be defeated. Here, they experience Rays of Hope. Through your donations, we can continue to provide Rays of Hope to the 10,000 Central Ohioans we serve each year and expand our reach to the communities in Franklin and the six surrounding counties.
Last year, more than 60,000 Ohioans learned that they have cancer. In fact, half of all men and a third of all women will get this news at some point in their lifetime. With the prevalence of cancer increasing daily, the need to support cancer patients and their families through educational programming is greater than ever.
The Master Plan
We’ve set a $1.1 million goal for the Rays of Hope campaign, which is critically important to expand our ability to touch the lives of those impacted by cancer. To meet our mission, we must fund the expansion of long-term cancer survivorship programming and retire the debt on our welcoming new home at 1200 Old Henderson Road, Columbus. You can help today through a one-time gift, a pledge of financial support, including Cancer Support Community in your estate and planned giving, or through the purchase of one of our commemorative gift options.
