We offer a variety of emotional support options for those diagnosed with any type of cancer, their caregivers, family, friends and anyone living with the loss of a loved one.
Our counseling sessions and peer-based support groups are led and facilitated by licensed mental health professionals. Support groups provide a regular time to connect with others who “get” the cancer journey. Peers can openly explore the many emotions and challenges, while providing insight and wisdom to others.
Our licensed mental health professionals are available to meet with you individually to help reduce cancer-related distress through listening, coping strategies and helpful resources.
By phone, by zoom or in person meeting safely with masks and social distancing for now, we are here for you. Please let us connect you to the support and resources you need.
Gilda’s Club gave me the support I needed after my breast cancer diagnosis. Members of my group “get it” and we share each others’ struggles, concerns and encourage each other. It’s a great place of support!Ellen
Thrive Tribe is our peer-to-peer connection group made up of compassionate, inspiring people who have walked a similar journey. These individuals have stories connected to cancer that want to share how they’ve worked through comparable situations or had the same questions. Survivors, caregivers, family, friends and co-workers.
I turn thirty this year and I am proud to say that I am a cancer survivor. Thanks to this organization, I found comfort in healing on the inside before I healed on the outside. Just remember: no matter what life throws your way, you don’t have to do it alone.Whitney
Living with Cancer
Living with a cancer diagnosis brings unique challenges that not everyone can truly understand. In this peer-based, weekly group, you’ll have the chance to share your emotions and experiences with others who “get” what you’re going through. For people who are in active treatment or up to 12 months post treatment.
Tuesdays: 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Thursdays: 11:30am – 12:30 pm
Friends and Family
While cancer patients are often surrounded by support, families often deal with unique challenges that not everyone understands. In this weekly group, you have a supportive space where you can express your concerns, fears and, yes, even frustrations. It is open to family and friends of people with cancer.
Tuesdays: 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Living Beyond Cancer
Treatment’s over, and now you are back to normal right? We know it isn’t always that simple. In this peer-based, weekly group, you’ll have the chance to learn how to navigate your new “normal” with others who have also completed treatment.
Thursdays: 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Living with Loss
Grief is a journey, as well as a process. As you work through it, there may be a time where it would help to connect with others who have lost a loved one to cancer to find an empathetic ear.
