Cancer Support Groups and Programming
Cancer support groups meet in a variety of locations at different dates and times, allowing you to share strength with others who have been where you are. The groups are led by cancer psych-oncology specialists, nurses, registered dietitians and social workers. The groups include patient-focused presentations from providers, interaction with other patients with cancer and support.
