Support Groups

Cancer affects far more than your body; your psychological and emotional health must also be considered. Our focus is the whole person, as well as the needs of friends and family that care for you. Groups can help resolve feelings of isolation, loneliness, and are a source of valuable information and encouragement. Texas Oncology support groups bring patients together virtually to share experiences, receive guidance, and to feel a sense of community. Support groups are only available to Texas Oncology patients.
