The mission of the peer mentorship program at HCGH is to connect newly diagnosed cancer patients with a mentor who has experienced a similar diagnosis. The goal is to provide support, companionship, comfort and to reduce isolation.

Our Center honors the memory of long-time Howard County resident Claudia Mayer, who died of cancer at age 47. It is also named for Tina Broccolino, one of the founders of the center. Her support was instrumental in the center's growth over the past 15 years.
Our experienced staff provides you with the educational materials you need to better understand your diagnosis and treatment. We have a selection of current materials from the NIH, The National Cancer Institute, The American Cancer Society, Johns Hopkins Medicine and other organizations devoted to informing the cancer patient and their families. We also provide help navigating online resources and can provide access to local, state and national programs and resources that may be of help to you.
Our center is now offering additional integrative medicine services, including acupuncture, therapeutic massage and nutritional consultations. The expanded range of therapies are available for cancer patients and those without cancer and are being offered in collaboration with providers from the Maryland University of Integrative Health, a graduate university in Laurel that educates practitioners.
