Online Support Groups
Online support groups take place using a password-protected message board format (not live chat) and are led by professional oncology social workers who offer support and guidance. Groups are held for 15 weeks at a time, and group members must register to join. After completing the registration process (which can take up to 2-3 business days), members can participate by posting in the groups 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Telephone Support Groups
Connect with other people from across the country who share similar concerns in weekly, regularly scheduled, one-hour sessions.
Face-to-Face Support Groups
Led by CancerCare® oncology social workers at our offices in New York City, Long Island and New Jersey. Don’t live in the area? We can help you find face-to-face support groups in your own community.
To learn more about CancerCare’s telephone and face-to-face support groups or to register, call 800‑813‑HOPE (4673).
