Cancer Lifeline’s Support Groups work to meet the following needs of patients, survivors, caregivers, family members and friends:

  • To provide a place where emotions can be expressed and not judged
  • To foster a sense of community and inclusion with others experiencing similar challenges
  • To make available opportunities for education and information
  • To explore ways in which choice and control can be realized while living with cancer

While we are online, please note that our Support Group Norms require participation by both video and audio unless you have been granted an exception by Cancer Lifeline. To inquire about an exception, please call (206) 832-1271.
