Following a number of years of supporting the Cancer Support Community (CSC) Florida-Suncoast, based in Sarasota, Florida, the Scheidel Foundation has announced a matching funds challenge of $130,000 toward the start-up costs for a Jacksonville affiliate. Through its fifty affiliates and more than one hundred satellite locations, CSC provides a comprehensive array of services free of charge to cancer survivors, their families, and their caregivers. One of the world’s largest providers of cancer support services, CSC is the nation’s foremost employer of psychosocial mental health professionals in the oncology field. Services include health and wellness informational programs and, most importantly, an essential personal connection among those undergoing the cancer experience.
The Scheidel Foundation, in partnership with respected leaders in the field of cancer care, have formed a start-up committee. We invite those interested in bringing CSC to Jacksonville to contact the Foundation for further information.
