The Hearst Cancer Resource Center (HCRC) is a one-of-a-kind resource in San Luis Obispo County for those living with cancer and their families.

Our goal is to help persons with cancer learn about the disease, recognize opportunity for improved health, build a personal support system, and sense of extended family. We are dedicated to serving patients and their families: ranging from those newly diagnosed with cancer, in treatment, in recovery, and living beyond cancer.

The HCRC is made possible by a generous gift from members of the Hearst Family and individuals in the community. This donation allows all cancer patients and families use of this unique center and its resources free of charge. The HCRC integrates many community cancer organizations under one roof with the expertise of oncology trained professionals on staff.

Free services include:

  • Nurse navigator to guide, advocate and support patients through their journey

  • Social services and Support Programs offer one-on-one, family, and financial counseling

  • Nutritional counseling to achieve health and well-being goals

  • Treatment techniques to aid in holistic well-being and relaxation

  • Appearance center with resources for cancer patients to look and feel their best

  • Spiritual and therapeutic social activities to strengthen community bases
