Cancer Support Groups

The cancer support groups are led by Charity Pate, oncology social worker at Johnston Hematology and Oncology. The purpose of the group is to help cancer patients cope with their diagnosis by combining an educational and emotional approach. We provide a safe place for patients, caregivers, family members, and cancer survivors to share common experiences, feelings, and concerns.

Registration is required.

Topics of Discussion:

  • Get to know your cancer center and facing distress
  • Navigating treatment decisions

  • Next steps and community resources

All classes are held the first Thursday of every month from 10- 11 a.m. in the Johnston Health Hematology & Oncology conference room.
