The Cancer Support Community Community Meeting & Site Tours

Tue, September 26, 2017


The Cancer Support Community (formerly known as the Wellness Community) is a non-profit organization that provides services, support and education programs for anyone facing cancer. We help people facing cancer live longer, and better lives. We are proud to have been recently awarded the highest rating for financial integrity by Charity Navigator. Located in Walnut Creek since 1990, the Community Center is pleased to announce plans to move to Lafayette— where it has served hundreds of members of the community over the years. A 5.75 acre parcel of land has been identified on the south side of Mt. Diablo Boulevard (west of the Lafayette Reservoir) that currently is privately owned, closed to the public, and zoned for homes or a community center. The location was chosen for its beautiful natural landscape, and will include 75% open space, to retain the natural setting which is ideal for healing. It will include a community garden, and will be open to the entire Lafayette community. We welcome all community members, including any members of your organizations, to come learn more about the plans for the proposed center, at any of the following events: Community Meeting: Tuesday, September 26th, 7:00-8:30pm, at the Lafayette Library and Learning Center, Arts and Sciences Room, Mezzanine floor, 3491 Mt. Diablo Blvd. (The meeting room is accessible from the back patio area, near the Friends Book Sore, or from the parking area, or from the main entrance.) Site Tours: The Center is offering site tours on the following dates: Wednesday, September 27th, from 5:00 – 6:00 pm; and Saturday, October 14th, from 10:00- 11:30am. Signs will be posted at the entrance, and parking will be available on site. The site has minimal hardscaping, and is sloped, so please wear comfortable shoes and let us know ahead of time if we can help make any special accommodations. To RSVP, or for questions, please contact Mo Erwin at merwin@cancersupport.net. More events and tour dates will be scheduled and announced. http://cancersupport.net
