Support Groups and Counseling
Being diagnosed with cancer is a physically and emotionally trying experience. Many avenues for support exist within the local community and beyond, both for the patient and for the patient's family and friends. The American Cancer Society has information on many local support groups. In addition, social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, and clergy can also be helpful in providing information and companionship through difficult times caused by the cancer.
