Many individuals and family members find support groups to be beneficial to their healing. Even though our patients receive support from family and friends, the main reason they attend a support group is to be with others who have experienced a similar situation. Information is provided and questions are addressed. The various groups offered are all facilitated by professionals with many years of experience in assisting those along the cancer journey.
