Cancer Support Groups

Extra support for you and your family when you need it most

Cancer Risk Assessment, 3Harrison Medical Center and Harrison Oncology Services offer a host of cancer support groups to help patients and families cope with the challenges of serious illness.

Support groups provide those coping with a cancer diagnosis and treatment an opportunity to share and learn with others in similar situations. Participants discover that they are not alone in their feelings, and are invited to share their experiences in a safe and supportive atmosphere.

Following is our current list of cancer support groups:
