Facilities

The center combines a broad range of services, covering both the emotional and material needs of women coping with breast cancer. Our facilities include:

Cafe

The heart of the Center. The cafe is a meeting place for women at different stages of treatment, allowing them to sit and talk together. At such a difficult time, a woman after diagnosis needs to talk with other women who are in the same situation or have shared the same ordeal. Only such women can understand her, and only they, from personal experience, can help effectively. In the cafe women meet others at different points along this long journey, coping with different challenges. In such a setting there is the opportunity for conversation, cooperation, and mutual encouragement. A social worker is also present for several hours a week for those seeking professional counsel.

Jerusalem

Jerusalem of gold, stone and light - home to three of the great monotheistic religions - offers unique opportunities and challenges to the center. Jews from all over the world, secular, religious, and haredi, and Arabs, both Moslem and Christian, inhabit this ancient and modern city. Differences of culture and language must be addressed, while realizing that universal concerns and fears unite them all.

Our building

The first stage in establishing The Center For The Breast Cancer Survivor is finding the proper physical location. The setting must be home-like in look and feel and accessible most of the hours of the day. It must be centrally located so that women can come easily from all parts of the city. At the same time, it should have convenient and free parking. The building will be divided into different spaces configured for the various activities of the center.
