Support Groups offer cancer patients the opportunity to interact, comfort, and encourage one another, and provide emotional support after diagnosis and during the rigors of cancer treatment.
We offer a wide variety of Support Groups and Creative Classes for Men, Women and Adolescents. These Support Groups and Classes are open to cancer fighters, survivors, co-survivors and caregivers. All Groups and Classes are held at the Reynolds Cancer Support House, 3324 South M Street. Emotional groups are lead by a licensed professional.
