Support Group & Events
As you find your way along, cancer journey support groups can be excellent resources not only for the information they provide but for the camaraderie of spirit they offer. They can also be helpful at the end of treatment as you find yourself readjusting to everyday life again.
Our healthcare practitioners are encouraged to utilize telemedicine when appropriate to replace in-person healthcare visits. Your cancer care provider will determine whether it is appropriate for you to be seen via telemedicine or whether an in-person visit is necessary.
At Rocky Mountain Cancer Centers, we are proud to partner with some of the best cancer awareness organizations and foundations in Colorado, who are promoting cancer care support, awareness, and survivorship services.
