Maxwell V. Blum Cancer Resource Program
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.
Join Mass General Cancer Center staff, clinicians and other individuals living with, through and beyond cancer for this annual event.
Our support programs are designed to help patients, their families and caregivers cope with the challenges of a cancer diagnosis. We offer a wide range of workshops and support groups.
