Education And Support Groups
Support Groups are an important part of treatment giving our patients a place and an opportunity to share thoughts, feelings and concerns with others who are going through a similar process. The benefits help each patient cope with their disease and treatment by decreasing anxiety and depression and decreasing feelings of isolation and loneliness.
