Support Group Locations


Joining a support group has many benefits, including being able to connect with others who have had similar experiences. Our support groups provide a time and space for patients, their families, and friends to discuss feelings, concerns and attitudes in a compassionate environment. Our experienced staff facilitates and guides the discussion in small-group settings to encourage open dialogue.

We offer many different types of support groups that provide emotional support for cancer. Some groups are disease-specific, age or gender-specific, and some are time limited. Your nurse navigator or social worker can also help you understand more about the support groups and benefits they provide.

Ask your doctor, nurse or other healthcare provider
