Cancer Support Groups

Joining a support group that meets in-person or online can connect you with others who have experienced or are facing similar situations. In the support groups at Memorial Cancer Institute in South Florida, you can find encouragement, community and hope.

Why Join a Cancer Support Group?

Memorial Cancer Institute's support groups are welcoming and safe places where you can:

  • Be heard and understood
  • Express and work through your feelings
  • Get answers to questions from people who have walked in your shoes
  • Know you are not alone

Join a Virtual Support Group

Memorial Cancer Institute coordinates groups of patients, family members and caregivers to discuss various cancer-related topics in-person and online. Find the support group that best meets your needs.

We are working to serve our cancer patients, their caregivers, families and friends by offering free virtual support groups. Our cancer support groups are designed to help you navigate through the journey of cancer treatment to survivorship.

Each group is aimed to provide emotional support and to connect with others. Come and learn from our experts and together we will continue to fight.
