Cancer Patient Support Groups

At Houston Methodist, we understand that cancer takes an enormous toll on you, your family and caregivers.  Sharing the struggles and successes with other people facing similar issues is often very helpful — even rewarding. We offer ongoing support groups at convenient locations throughout the city. 

Breast Cancer Support Group
We help women and men at any stage of diagnosis and treatment understand how breast cancer affects them emotionally and spiritually, not just physically. Our mission is to ensure, through information, empowerment and peer support, that no one faces breast cancer alone. The group is led by a trained facilitator and offered at Houston Methodist Neal Cancer Center locations around the Houston area.

 

Brain Tumor Support Group

Our group offers patients and their families, friends, and caregivers an environment of support and education. The group meets every other month to hear from featured guest speakers, share experiences and offer emotional support. We provide resources about brain tumor diagnosis, treatments, and clinical trials as well as information about organizations that specialize in patient care, assistance and special needs.   

Meetings are held virtually on the fourth Tuesday of every other month, from Noon to 1:30 p.m. To register and receive the virtual meeting link or for more information, please call 346.238.4466 or email erferguson@houstonmethodist.org.
