Whether you’ve just been diagnosed, you’re in the midst of treatment or you’re starting recovery, you don’t have to go it alone. While you can rely on the help of family and friends, the support groups at the Moncrief Cancer Institute put you in touch with people facing the same challenges you are.

Moncrief offers support groups, facilitated by social workers, for current and former cancer patients, their families and friends. Talk, share, listen and learn – Moncrief Cancer Institute’s support groups can provide the emotional support you need, while giving you a chance to support someone else in need.
