Support groups are the heart of The Cancer Support Community. Learn from others, be inspired, ask the hard questions, share your feelings, all in a safe environment with other people dealing with cancer who really “get it.” Being in a support group helps reduce anxiety and fear, helps restore hope, and reduces feeling alone. Often times even your closest friends and family may not truly understand what you are going through; your group members will. Patient Groups
for those with a recent cancer diagnosis or treatment in the past 18 months Support Person Groups
for those with a loved one with cancer (These groups require attendance at a Welcome to Wellness session and a brief interview prior to group assignment). Bereavement Groups
for those who have lost a loved one to cancer (Welcome to Wellness not required, please call for brief interview before group assignment). Survivorship Group
for those who have graduated from their patient group, or, those who have completed treatment, are in remission, are cancer free, or are on long-term maintenance medication. Children’s Support Group
For children and teens age 6 to 17 who have a parent or other loved one with cancer. Spanish Family Group
for Spanish-speaking patients and caregivers.
