Support Groups Provide Understanding

With a cancer diagnosis, it’s hard to understand what to expect and sometimes, even the most supportive family members can’t understand what you’re going through. But a support group can help. Our support group leadership not only provides a group environment to talk about what you’re going through, but they also check on our patients individually – sometimes stopping by to see those in treatment. Our support team keeps a very positive and uplifting attitude, so we can help our patients through their cancer journey.
