Support Groups

Our support groups are designed to help individuals cope with the emotional impact of a cancer diagnosis through sharing and learning with others.

For the safety of our community during COVID-19, our programs and services are currently being provided virtually or via phone. All of our support groups are currently being offered via GoTo Meeting and Zoom. You will see below that we note East or West for our groups.
