Cancer Lifeline's Support Groups work to meet the following needs of patients, survivors, caregivers, family members and friends:
- To provide a place where emotions can be expressed and not judged
- To foster a sense of community and inclusion with others experiencing similar challenges
- To make available opportunities for education and information
- To explore ways in which choice and control can be realized while living with cancer

Experiencing cancer can be life-changing and sometimes result in a shift in your priorities. This workshop is for survivors who are at least three months out from completion of treatment for any type of cancer. You will examine the ways cancer has impacted your life, make sense of what you learned, and realize the wisdom you gained. Learn how to enhance your coping strategies and create a physically and mentally healthy lifestyle. Start taking the steps to unleash your dream and get “unstuck” in pursuing what “might” or “could be” for yourself going forward.

Women with any type of cancer diagnosis are welcome at these monthly groups, whether you are newly diagnosed, working your way through treatment or just finishing treatment. Join other women in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment to talk and get support on all the different ways cancer impacts your life.
