As you find your way along the 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. If you don’t see a group or class here for your particular cancer type talk to your social worker or doctor about disease specific resources. Wherever you are on your journey our goal is to help you and your loved ones never lose sight of hope.
