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 Cancer Center locations around the Houston area:

Peak Center Brain Tumor Support Group

Our group offers patients and their families, friends, and caregivers an environment of support and education. The group meets monthly to hear from featured guest speakers, share experiences and offer emotional support.

This group is open to everyone, including patients from other hospitals. It is especially valuable to patients with brain tumors (both primary and metastatic) and those suffering neurologic complications from cancer. Caregivers also find this group beneficial. 

Meetings are held the second Monday of every month, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Houston Methodist Greenbriar Office Building, 8100 Greenbriar, Conference Room 304, Houston, TX 77054. Parking and dinner are provided. For more information, please call 713.441.1832 or 713.515.3464.
