Sarasota's Team Tony Cancer Foundation recently unveiled its new Cancer Connection Center at 3562 S. Osprey Ave., Sarasota. The center is a coffee shop-style concept that provides a safe, supportive and welcoming environment designed to deliver peer-to-peer support, create a sense of belonging and provide free resources and educational opportunities to enhance the well-being of those affected by cancer. The facility houses a casual, self-service coffee bar with a kitchen area that offers coffee, tea, water and light snacks. Those seeking support can grab a cup of coffee and connect with a survivor teammate and more. The Team Tony Cancer Foundation’s four staff members will also work out of the center.
