Education and support
If you’ve ever done a Google search for the word cancer, you know how much information is available out there.
The Salem Cancer Institute is your local source for trustworthy, up-to-the-minute information—minus the sales pitch.
Our caring staff can point you to any number of local and national resources that will guide you every step of the way from diagnosis to treatment and beyond.
We have an ever-expanding roster of classes, events and support groups for cancer patients. Use the links on the left or visit the Community Health Education Center’s (CHEC) event calendar to find one that interests you.
CHEC is also an excellent source for medical information. They have a resource center where you can check out books and an online health library with regularly updated information. If you prefer national sources, you can visit the websites of several site-specific cancer organizations.
