Finding support groups
A cancer diagnosis can leave you feeling overwhelmed and isolated.
If you have been diagnosed with cancer within the last 12 months, the Canadian Cancer Society offers the Inspiring Hope Support Group Series.
A support group consists of 8 two-hour sessions. Led by experienced professionals along with cancer survivors, the sessions are structured but also provide flexibility in format and topics.
To find a support group near you, call 1-800-263-6750 or contact your local Canadian Cancer Society office.
