The Cancer Resource Center is designed to be a haven of respite, resources, guidance and support for people with cancer and their families.

Support groups and services, classes, education and outreach programs, survivorship guidance and a Breast Health Program are free and open to the community.
Individual guidance and help navigating through diagnosis, treatment and survivorship is available through our oncology social worker, oncology and breast health nurse navigator and tumor registrars. While appointments are encouraged for your convenience, walk-ins are welcome.

Clinical Trials for People with Cancer
Clinical trials are designed to find better ways to prevent, diagnose and treat cancer. Most of today’s treatments are based on the results of past trials. When patients are referred to a clinical trial as part of their treatment plan, we can help coordinate the process. We can also help match patients with clinical trials that might be available to them. For more information, contact the SVMHS Clinical Research Department at (831) 759-1838.
The Cancer Resource Center is actively working with Leukemia and Lymphoma Society and Be The Match Registry to be a bone marrow testing site for the community. Anyone can drop by the Cancer Resource Center and provide a simple cheek swab to help save a life. The swab and a little information is all that is needed to become part of the bone marrow registry. Please call the Cancer Resource Center for more information.
