Our Mission

Cancer Support Community Delaware has spent the past 27 years making our mission our tradition, by striving to ensure that all people impacted by cancer are empowered by knowledge, strengthened by action, and sustained by community. As a statewide nonprofit organization our support groups and programs are professionally led and are provided at no cost to help participants and caregivers cope with the emotional and life changing aspects of cancer.

Health Equity Statement

CSCDE’s health equity efforts center on three values: access, affordability, and inclusivity, offered at no-cost. Access to and inclusivity of programming and patient education around the importance of screenings, prevention, and healthy lifestyles, especially for those communities who have been historically underrepresented and under-resourced, is accomplished via in-person, hybrid, and virtual offerings. We also ensure access to and affordability of quality health care, to include the prevention and mitigation of financial toxicity; we address health-related social needs so that each patient, caregiver, and loved one impacted by cancer can engage with programs and services that meet their unique needs. We are intentional and thoughtful in our approach to serving each person throughout the state of Delaware innovatively and collaboratively throughout their cancer journey, as reflected by our internal team, board composition, CSCDE Health Equity Advisory Board, and longstanding partnerships with Delaware’s four major cancer centers.
