About

The American Cancer Society HopeClub is a support community for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer. Support is for everyone – you, your family, children, teens, young adults, friends, co-workers – no one is turned away. There is no cost to become a member and all services and programs are free. The HopeClub name reflects the “hope” that the American Cancer Society shares every day for a world with less cancer and a “club” atmosphere that welcomes everyone.

HopeClub offers professionally led support groups, the full range of American Cancer Society signature programs, and social gatherings designed to maintain and foster a unique sense of community. Services offered through HopeClub are so varied that you are sure to find something that fits your needs. Learn more about our services and programs.

Interested in attending any of our programs? Call 518-220-6960 to learn more about the club and to develop a schedule of programs unique to your needs. Membership is free for patients, caregivers, and family and friends, but required to attend support groups, workshops and the children’s program. Becoming a member is easy. Just stop by to fill out your membership form and start enjoying the services HopeClub has to offer.
