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

Information

Support Groups

Lead by a professional, for the women, their spouses, children and other family members (parents, siblings). Family members of the cancer patient are also enduring a very difficult experience and, for the most part, do not receive much support as they must provide support for the patient. The Center will offer support groups for spouses, children, parents and siblings coping with the disease of their spouse/mother/daughter/sister.

Wigs and Hats

Specialty Cosmetics

Prosthesis, Bras and Swimsuits

Movie Library

Books

Exercise Classes

Lectures

Discussions with oncologists and surgeons

Children's Activity Room

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.
