How to Join

At Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia (CSCGP), anyone who participates in our programs is considered a “member.” The term comes from Saturday Night Live star (and cancer support community veteran) Gilda Radner’s tongue-in-cheek comment that having cancer in her life made her a member of an elite club to which she’d rather not belong.

More than that, though, we use the term “member” because we want to you to know that you’re part of a community — a cancer support community.

All programs we offer are provided free of charge. 

Becoming a member of the Cancer Support Community Greater Philadelphia is free and easy. Just follow these steps:
