Family Support

The Methodist Hospital Cancer Family Support Group

A cancer diagnosis can be almost as difficult for the family and friends of cancer patients as it is for the patients themselves. The Methodist Hospital Cancer Family Support Group is open to any family members or friends of cancer patients, and is facilitated by Chaplain Carolyn Cowan, Penny Testa, R.N., and Beverly Hughes, an oncology nurse.

In addition to group conversations, the facilitators are available to answer questions about cancer and cancer treatment, assist with referrals to other disciplines such as social services and nutrition, and provide emotional support.

When: every Thursday,
3:00—4:00 p.m.

Where: The Methodist Hospital, Main 899, Houston, Texas

For more information: Beverly Hughes, 713.441.4520

The Methodist Breast Center offers our patients not only outstanding medical care, but also a range of emotional and social support services that can play an important part in the healing and treatment process.
