CancerCare is offering a free, 12-week face-to-face support group for older adults (65+) diagnosed with cancer who are receiving a form of active treatment (which may consist of surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, hormonal treatments and/or advanced cancer treatment). This group will provide a safe place to exchange support and receive information and guidance while discussing the unique challenges of living with a cancer diagnosis.

Our Groups:

  • Provide cancer-focused support
  • Reduces feelings of loneliness, anxiety and distress
  • Help increase feelings of hope and empowerment
  • Assist you in learning new ways of coping
  • Help you improve communication with your medical team and loved ones
  • Provide you with practical information about treatment
  • Provide you with resources in your community
