Cancer Support Groups

Cancer Services offers support groups each month for cancer patients and survivors to share their stories with one another. Some are specific to the type of cancer, others are offered in outlying parishes, some are even for patients’ families and friends, helping them learn about the disease and connect with others who have loved ones living with cancer.
