CancerCare is offering a free, 8-week live support group for people in New York who have experienced the loss of a loved one due to cancer in the last 18 months and are caring for one or more children under age 18. This group will provide a safe place to exchange support, get information and receive guidance while discussing the unique challenges of grief and loss.

Our Groups:

  • Provide cancer-focused support, specific to single fathers
  • Reduce feelings of loneliness, anxiety and distress
  • Help increase feelings of hope and empowerment
  • Assist you in learning new ways of coping and parenting from the experiences of others
  • Help you improve communication with your children and others in your life
  • Provide you with practical information and resources in your community

Start Date:

We are currently recruiting for our next group cycle, which begins Spring 2020. This support group will meet on Thursdays.

This group will utilize a secure video platform. Group members will still have the option to call in if they do not have access to video technology.


Space is limited and pre-registration is required. For more information or to register, call our Hopeline at 800-813-HOPE (4673) or contact A.J. Cincotta-Eichenfield, LMSW, at 212-712-8071 or
