Mission Monday: Family Support Groups

"Was it you or I who stumbled first?  It does not matter.
The one of us who finds the strength to get up first, must help the other."
- Vera Nazarian


The Family Support Group program was established throughout the country to link patients and their families to a place where information, education, and feelings can be shared in a comfortable and caring environment.  Support groups are for those affected by blood cancer, their family members and friends, and are FREE.

All of our Family Support Groups are facilitated by credentialed health/mental health professionals who have extensive oncology and group work experience.  They are prepared to handle sensitive issues such as treatment questions, loss, guilt and family topics.
