The 11 Day Power Play Cancer Resource Center
This center provides breast and GYN cancer information and resources for all patients and their caregivers. The center offers free wigs, scarves and hats for patients receiving chemotherapy, skincare classes, connections to support and advocacy groups and a lending library with print and video.
Cancer Coach Program
This program offers patients the opportunity to speak with cancer survivors who know first-hand the impact of a cancer diagnosis. Talking with someone who has lived with cancer can be comforting and may help reduce the sense of anxiety and isolation. Patients may be matched with a coach based on cancer diagnosis, stage, age and/or gender. Cancer Coaches are trained and dedicated volunteers who provide support, comfort, and practical information. Cancer Coaches do not provide medical advice.
This online Roswell Park community is for everyone whose life has been touched by cancer. CancerConnect provides a place where you can safely share your thoughts, ideas and concerns; meet other cancer patients, survivors, caregivers or loved ones; and participate in moderated information discussions.

Our team provides essential support and symptom management to relieve pain, nausea, poor sleep and anxiety; ease emotional distress; and improve quality of life.
