Who Should Come to HopeWell

If you are reading this, chances are that cancer has touched your life.

As you well know, a cancer diagnosis brings a series of life-changing moments. For more than 20 years, HopeWell has been helping people just like you, to cope with these overwhelming changes.

People with cancer, and those who love them, are forced to find a new “normal,” before, during and after treatment. Priorities shift, relationships change, life is … just, different. At HopeWell, people with cancer tell us every day what helps them most: receiving support, learning new coping skills and having access to information.

They also tell us that the journey through cancer has two paths: medical and emotional. In the Baltimore area, there is just one organization—HopeWell Cancer Support—that focuses exclusively on addressing the emotional side effects  of cancer.  We work on healing the body, heart and soul. Our community of support is an essential complement to medical treatment for people with cancer, their families, friends and loved ones.

We invite you to explore this website. Hear the voices of hope on these pages.
And, know that you are always welcome at HopeWell.

"When I came here, I could drop my guard and unload the negative. It was well-received because we were sharing. This is a safe haven, a caring, caressing environment."tp

Our Mission is to create a community for all people with cancer, their families and friends, that encourages an exchange of information, the development of a support system and the presence of hope.
