Support Groups Benefits
Support groups have many benefits, including:
Helpful for Children and Family Members
Participants can dial in to telephone support groups like a conference call. They can share and talk to others with similar experiences from all over the country. There is usually little or no charge.
Online Support Groups
Experiences are Different
Support groups vary greatly, and if you have one bad experience, it doesn’t mean you should rule out all support groups; maybe you just need to try a different one to find the right fit. You may also want to find another cancer survivor with whom you can discuss your cancer experience.
