Support Services in Collaboration with the American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society offers a number of programs and services, and St. Joseph Hospital Cancer Center brings them right here to Nashua.

I Can Cope

I Can Cope is a free education program for people facing cancer — either personally or as a friend or family caregiver. Living with cancer is one of the greatest challenges a person can face. I Can Cope offers reliable information, peer support and practical coping skills to help patients and their loved ones meet this challenge.

Look Good Feel Better

The Look Good Feel Better program is a free national service that teaches female cancer patients beauty techniques to help adapt their appearance and boost their self-image during chemotherapy and radiation treatments.

Road to Recovery

Road to Recovery is a service that provides transportation for cancer patients to their treatments and home again. Transportation is provided according to the need and available resources in the community.

Reach to Recovery

For more than 30 years, the American Cancer Society Reach to Recovery program has helped women and men cope with their breast cancer experience. This experience begins when someone is faced with the possibility of a breast cancer diagnosis and continues as long as breast cancer remains a personal concern.

Through face-to-face visits or by phone, Reach to Recovery volunteers give support for those:

  • Recently diagnosed with breast cancer
  • Facing a possible diagnosis of breast cancer
  • Interested in or who have undergone a lumpectomy or mastectomy
  • Considering breast reconstruction
  • With lymphedema
  • Undergoing or have completed treatment such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy
  • Facing breast cancer recurrence or metastasis
