The Charlotte Maxwell Complementary Clinic was founded to provide access to complementary alternative medicine (CAM) for low-income women with cancer. By providing these services we hope to empower women to have control over their lives and health care choices. The clinic was also founded specifically to treat women because of the particular social, economic, and political realities women face in our society and in relation to the health care system. Through this work we also educate the community at large about cancer and about health care as a human right. CMCC periodically holds informational meetings and workshops for clients, volunteers, and members of the public to present issues related to cancer, complementary medicine, lymphedema, pain management, and other cancer related concerns. We also sponsor courses in Traditional Chinese Medicine to train acupuncturists and herbalists in the treatment of women with cancer. Our services include acupuncture, Chinese and Western herbs, homeopathy, massage therapy, and therapeutic imagery. We also offer social work assistance, transportation to and from clinic appointments, fresh organic produce and bread, and educational workshops. In addition, we offer three important programs: The In-Home Comfort Care Program provides CAM treatments for those clients with end-stage cancer who are too weak to come to the Clinic. The Post Treatment Program extends our CAM treatments, emotional support, and educational workshops to women living with cancer who have finished their allopathic treatment and have no signs of recurrence, and our Survivorship Program that includes weekly exercise classes led by cancer exercise specialists, and stress reduction classes.
