The American Cancer Society saves more lives and creates more birthdays by helping you stay well, helping you get well, by finding cures and by fighting back.

The American Cancer Society recognizes that the cancer experience varies among the people whose lives have been touched by the disease. This is why we have created and tailored our programs and services to help alleviate some of the confusion and to address the unique needs of cancer patients and their loved ones. We’re here to offer support and we’re confident that no matter who you are… we can help.

Listed here are just a few of the complimentary services and support programs we offer.

  • Look Good…Feel Better for Teens. This free class offers practical tips to a small group of guys and girls who are going through cancer treatment. We’re here to help you deal with hair loss, skin changes, nutrition and fitness and staying social. You’ll leave the class with a kit of skin care products, makeup, a teen guide full of useful information and a free hat, wig or other head covering.
  • Hope Mountain Camp for siblings of kids with cancer. Our camp offers a safe and supportive environment that provides opportunies for siblings to learn about cancer, share common bonds, develop a network of friends who can relate to them and take a break from the stress and impact of cancer in their lives. Winter and Summer sessions each year. Colorado Residents only for Hope Mountain Camp, but for patients and sibling camps in other locations, please utilize www.cancer.org
  • Cancer Survivor College Scholarship Program is able to provide some financial assistance for qualified young cancer survivors as they pursue their dreams of higher education.
  • Road to Recovery. Having transportation issues? Rides to and from treatment are provided at no cost through Road to Recovery by volunteer drivers.
  • Cancer Survivors Network was created by and for cancer survivors and their families. This network brings together cancer survivors, caregivers and all of those touched by cancer into a virtual community. The network is accessible online through www.cancer.org/csn and provides a safe and welcome place for people to find hope and inspiration from others who have been there.
