Our mission is to enhance the quality of life of patients and families affected by cancer.

The Cancer Support Team (CST) is the only Westchester County-based nonprofit home care program, licensed by the New York State Department of Health, providing:

  • access to essential health care services,
  • professional nursing,
  • social work counseling,
  • case management and
  • other supportive services

free of charge and without regard to insurance coverage to our patients at any stage of the illness.

 

Who We Serve

Anyone with a primary diagnosis of cancer, who resides in lower Westchester County, New York, is eligible for services. (Patients are required to have a physician and a responsible caregiver.) Family members of eligible patients can also receive support services.
