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

Wigs and Hats

Purchase or loan of wigs and hats to patients with hair loss (alopecia) during chemotherapy. Purchase prices will be set as low as possible. Also, there is a "borrowing bank" supplied by women who have completed treatment and have donated their wigs for those who need them next. The intention of this project is not only to make finding a wig easier for patients but also to mitigate the financial burden on women during an often economically challenging period.

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.
