Cancer Support Groups

Support Groups and Programs

No one should ever have to go through cancer alone. That’s why University Hospital offers a number of support groups to help patients during their most difficult times.

Led by our cancer liaison and nurse navigators, support groups provide patients an opportunity to express and share their concerns, fears, and hopes with those who are experiencing similar life challenges.
