Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

The latest research from the National Institutes of Health continues to demonstrate what many other studies have discovered over the past two decades - cancer patients generally do better if they have social support. However, social support is not typically provided by the medical community.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Cancer CAREpoint is dedicated to transforming support for cancer patients, families and caregivers in Silicon Valley through personalized, one-on-one Counseling, Assistance, Resources and Education. We believe that every patient and family member in Silicon Valley impacted by cancer should have access to support services to ensure that they have complete cancer care and the best possible quality of life.

In addition to continuing our personalized, individualized support services we are focusing on key areas: 1) care advocacy -ensuring that our community has access to cancer screening and preventative measures, access to non-medical support services for all, and health literacy 2) partnering with other organizations to reach all impacted by cancer and to bridge resources for cancer patients, survivors, families & caregivers 3)Service Delivery - providing inclusive and accessible services with excellence, and 4) extending support at no cost for everyone impacted by cancer in our community.

Our employees include cancer survivors and three counselors that run our support groups, special presentations and one-on-one counseling. They provide a wealth of education and experience that help shape our program offerings and identify the needs of the community. We offer programs in addition to our support services that cover the range of social support needs--exercise, meditation, nutrition. Our Resource Center is spacious enough to offer onsite educational classes in nutrition and special topics, exercise, mind and body healing such as mediation, support groups and special programs. All of our services are currently available online, and once in-person meetings resume, we'll offer programs in our Resource Center, in the community, and online.

In 2021, we delivered over 12,000 program and service hours. 98% of our patients reported feeling less stress and anxiety and 95% said they experienced reduced pain. As we move forward we continue to focus on meeting the needs of the increasing number of survivors, newly diagnosed, and ensuring the underserved communities have access to support.
