Support groups

You can connect with others going through a similar cancer experience

by joining one of our many support groups. Our support groups are safe and supportive. They bring people from all walks of life together to share their concerns about their blood cancer experience without the fear of being judged or misunderstood.

If you are feeling a sense of detachment or isolation even if you are surrounded by friends and family who care for you, joining a support group may give you an extra outlet to validate your feelings among people who are also experiencing cancer. You will learn from their experiences and have opportunities to share your own coping methods and practical information.

I joined the support group to learn coping strategies post treatment and continue to attend for the community support. The participants and facilitators have so much insight, understanding and advice that makes me feel not alone in my cancer journey.
