Bereavement Support Group for Widowed Parents


This is an online support group for parents of minor children who are grieving the loss of a partner to cancer at MSK. The death of a partner to cancer when there are dependent children brings up unique challenges for the family. The surviving parent is faced with navigating their own grief, adjusting to being a single parent, and helping their children cope with the loss. 

The MSK Bereavement Program invites you to a group where you can connect with other parents going through a similar situation and explore ways to take care of yourself and your family. Once you complete the form below, a social worker from the bereavement team will reach out to you. 

If you would like more information about the group, please call 646-888-4889 or email
