The Maxwell V. Blum Cancer Resource Program understands that cancer can affect your mind, spiritual and soul, as well as your body. The program provides you with many things that you can do and use to help yourself live better after your, or a loved one’s, diagnosis. We believe that taking an active role in learning more about your cancer and ways to manage stress, side effects and daily living can help you feel more in control and less overwhelmed.

Blum Cancer Support and Education Hub

On Yawkey 7, outside suite 7B, the Hub is intended to be a comforting and welcoming place for patients, their families and friends to visit. Here you can: meet with a social worker, find information about coping and emotional needs, take part in an educational workshop, or just take a break and relax.
