On Line Support

Everyone needs emotional support while learning to survive cancer. Not just the patient, but the family and friends as well.

Most hospitals have a social worker assigned to assist patients and families and you should not hesitate to take advantage of their services.

Your primary care physician or oncologist may be able to refer you to a social worker or therapist who specializes in treating cancer patients. Such a therapist can be invaluable in putting you in touch with support groups, other patients, and support services.

Most insurance carriers cover such services, however, if you find that yours does not, call your county department of social services or department of human development. There should be some level of services available for everyone who needs them.

In addition, many churches, synogogs, temples, and other religious organizations have groups that meet to provide emotional support.

There are numerous support groups online, also. Try any search engine or directory and search for "cancer" AND "(type of cancer)" AND "support groups".

If you are not able to find the type of support group you are looking for, let us know and we'll try to help.

Don't try to travel this road alone - it's not meant to be a solitary journey.
