Online support groups take place using a password-protected message board format (not live chat) and are led by professional oncology social workers who offer support and guidance. Groups are held for 15 weeks at a time, and group members must register to join. After completing the registration process (which can take up to 2-3 business days), members can participate by posting in the groups 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Open to anyone in the United States, Puerto Rico and U.S. Territories.
Led by licensed oncology social workers, CancerCare’s live support groups offer the opportunity to connect with others who share similar concerns and experiences. Groups are available for residents of New York and New Jersey via video-conferencing, over the telephone or in-person in their New York City, New Jersey and Long Island offices.
