Support for cancer patients offered

A new cancer support organization, dedicated to caring for the psychological and social needs of cancer patients and their families, has opened in the 500 block of Baltimore Annapolis Blvd. in Severna Park.


The Cancer Resource and Support Center Inc., dubbed CaRES, plans to provide friendship and teach coping skills to those affected by cancer.

It does not provide medical services or advice and is not an alternative to conventional medical treatment.


The organization sponsors support group meetings every second and fourth Tuesday from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. and a support group for the children of cancer patients.

County residents who have cancer or have relatives with cancer can drop in to talk or watch videos on Mondays, noon to 4 p.m. and 7 p.m. to 9 p.m.; Tuesdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; Wednesdays, noon to 4 p.m.; Thursdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.; and Fridays, noon to 6 p.m.

For more information on CaRES, call 647-3555.
