Services

You may be hesitant to join a cancer support group. You may doubt a group can help you or you are wondering if you can talk with strangers about your feelings. Research has shown that individuals with cancer and cancer survivors often share a special bond, and those in groups live longer. After joining a support group members later expressed regrets in delay to join a group as sessions reduced their feeling of stress and isolation. Members realized they had increased feelings of hope, well being and expanded knowledge of their disease. While each person's relationship with cancer is unique, we can offer each other emotional support in sharing our experience and feelings.
