Description

A diagnosis of cancer can come when you least expect it. Suddenly your world has changed. You may feel overwhelmed and anxious and have questions about what lies ahead. The opportunity to connect with others living with cancer can help you not feel so alone.

CancerCare is offering a free, 12-week live support group for people diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in New York 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 metastatic breast 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
