Understanding that cancer care extends beyond patients’ physical needs, we offer a number of programs designed to support cancer patients, families and caregivers.
Our Breast Cancer and Grief Support Groups and Powerful Tools for Caregivers classes provide information, services and support for patients, family members, caregivers and also for those who have experienced the loss of a loved one. Facilitated by the Department of Spiritual Care, these groups are open to individuals of all faiths and beliefs, and offer patients, family members and friends the opportunity to meet others, find support and share experiences. For more information, please contact the Department of Spiritual Care at 281-274-7164.
