CHD looks forward to resuming a full slate of programs at the Cancer House of Hope at the appropriate time.
The CHD Cancer House of Hope is committed to providing access to free services and therapies that bring comfort, care, strength, resilience and hope to patients with cancer and their loved ones.
We focus on reducing stress and promoting comfort for people with cancer and their families and friends by offering programs and services in a non-institutional and home-like setting. Our volunteers and professionals are familiar with effects of cancer on a personal basis and genuinely offer understanding, encouragement, and hope. We are respectful of each individual’s coping strategies and the decisions he/she makes about treatment of his/her cancer and the use of any services we offer. Our staff, volunteers, and practitioners work at a high level of trust, integrity and open communication.
We are here to serve local western Massachusetts patients, their families and caregivers. Whether you are receiving treatment now or are a recent survivor, or a family member or caregiver of someone undergoing treatment, you should seek us out for support. It is our vision to be a supportive, caring and hopeful place of healing by cancer survivors, their families and friends, the local business and healthcare community and the community-at-large. CHD Cancer House of Hope is open to members of the cancer community, regardless of age, race, creed, sex, national origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, marital status, and socioeconomic status.
We are in West Springfield to provide free-of-charge cancer support services and relaxation programs for those who face this devastating disease.
We are conveniently located right on Westfield Street/Route 20 in West Springfield where there is easy access to the bus route. (Westfield / Poplar 1448) We serve nearly 400 annually and we offer an array of integrative therapies to reduce the stress and effects of cancer treatment. In addition to therapies that include yoga, massage and reiki, we offer group support and we are a resource for prostheses and hair loss needs.
