Basic Needs


The Barbara Sosman center exists to provide help and support for patients and families affected by cancer.
We provide a non-clinical sanctuary for folks impacted by cancer. Because cancer and its treatment affects the entire family, we provide a place where both the patient and caregiver can go and access those things that are not provided in a clinical setting.

We provide space to:
Relax, have a cup of coffee & meet other folks in a similar situation.
Do some research in our library unit.
Explore other available therapies and services.
Take advantage of continuing informational programs.
And, most importantly, network and make connections with other patients and caregivers.
Come visit a quiet  place out of the clinical setting. This is your living room!

Success Stories

We offer a safe space for caregivers of cancer patients to wait while their loved ones are in appointments or receiving treatments. We also provide resources such as masks and gloves to those who need them.
