Having the support of others while
going through cancer treatment can
be important to the healing process.

to their family and friends for
encouragement and emotional support.
But something quite valuable can be
gained by participating in a group
with people who are undergoing a
similar situation. Many patients
have found great strength and
encouragement through support
A mutual support
group can make a significant
contribution in restoring a sense of
well-being. When the group networks
with a caring medical team, the
patient and his/her family can more
readily move toward recovery despite
any limitations of cancer.
