All classes include a presentation by a medical profession and a question and answer session. Ask the Provider classes are free and open to the public.

Prostate Cancer Forums

Our Prostate Cancer Forums are held bi-monthly to provide prostate cancer patients, survivors, and their caregivers an opportunity to learn more about the disease and to share knowledge and experiences with each other. Sessions are held the first Tuesday of every other month at CBCC.

Please call (661) 862-7145 for more information, upcoming times, and to register for this free forum.

Cancer Connect

Individuals who are diagnosed with cancer at a young age often feel alone. That's why the CBCC Cancer Connect program was developed. A support group/social club for individuals in their 20's and 30's who have been diagnosed with cancer, CBCC Cancer Connect was formed to provide encouragement, strength, hope, and a sense of normalcy for young individuals. The group meets once a month, each time at a different location.

Please call (661) 862-7145 for more information.

 

Support Groups

Patient and Family Support Groups

Patient and Family Support Groups create an opportunity for patients and caregivers to talk with other patients and caregivers in a relaxed environment.

Support groups are facilitated by a licensed Clinical Psychologist or licensed Clinical Social Worker and are held at CBCC on the 1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month from 12:00—1:30pm.

Bereavement Support Group

The Bereavement Support Group is a six-week group session designed to assist family members who have lost a loved one. Participants are given the tools to understand their needs and their abilities and help them move naturally through the grieving process.

For more information or to register for our free support groups, please call The CBCC Foundation at (661) 862-7145 or CBCC Social Services at (661) 862-7154.
