Support Groups

Support groups give patients and their families an outlet for the feelings and emotions that may emerge as health issues arise. Support groups also provide a forum for learning from another patient's experiences or for sharing one's own story. Northwest Hospital & Medical Center offers the following support groups for people facing cancer.
