Friends and Family Education and Support Group

Adults in support group talking

This is a special group for friends and family of those experiencing cancer. It is designed to help friends and family cope with stress and role changes that occur through a cancer experience. In the meetings, education about cancer helps teach basic facts about the disease and its treatment. The group members share ways to improve communication and solve problems, and learn the importance of taking care of oneself.
