Free one-on-one counseling and support groups for cancer patients, survivors, family members, and those in bereavement from a cancer-related loss. Services are provided by counseling interns who speak English and Spanish.
This support group offers a safe place for patients in advanced treatment to share their thoughts and feelings, learn how to cope with daily challenges, and connect with others who may be going through the same things.
Yoga classes are offered weekly to patients with breast, lung or colorectal cancer, as part of a research study for people with cancer who are eligible.
Volunteers in this program are available to provide companionship and support to isolated cancer patients at medical appointments or by telephone.
