Support groups are run by licensed social workers and nurses with expertise and training that can help you and your family cope with adjusting to cancer emotionally and physically. Participants are encouraged to share experiences or simply gather information. Our disease-specific support groups touch on dealing with issues such as fatigue, isolation, and concerns about the future. We also offer specialty groups for parents, caregivers, and anyone grieving. For more information, please contact the Department of Social Work at 212-639-7020.

Free, in-person meetings take place across all MSK locations, including our inpatient Memorial Hospital and regional facilities.

Cancer Survivor Support Groups

Cancer survivors may choose to participate in a variety of support groups that are also run by licensed social workers and nurses. Learn more in our Survivorship Center.
