Cancer Care Support Services

Ingeborg’s Place Apart

Those who are undergoing cancer treatment often face many difficult challenges. In addition to the fear and uncertainty that a cancer diagnosis can bring, changes in physical appearance due to chemotherapy or radiation, as well as surgery, can contribute to low self-esteem, depression and feelings of isolation.

Adventist Health Glendale’s Ingeborg’s Place Apart was created in 2004 in honor of Ingeborg Nord Zern. Her friends and family created Ingeborg’s Place Apart at Adventist Health Glendale to provide a peaceful, relaxing space to rest between cancer treatments, as well as to provide positive image services, such as wigs, prosthetic garments, makeup tips and much more in support of cancer survivors, particularly women.

Your support of this special program will help us to continue to provide these free services for cancer survivors, whether they have received treatment at Adventist Health Glendale or elsewhere.

Support Groups

Medical experts agree that conversations with those who are going through similar circumstances are beneficial to mental health. Our free cancer support groups, provided by a licensed clinical therapist, include a survivors group as well as a caregivers group. Your donation will help us keep these support groups free for those who need it most.
