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.
