Support Groups

Our support groups are a setting where patients and their family members can talk about with cancer. They do this with others on a similar journey, facilitated by a professional counsellor. It is also a time for crafts, games, camaraderie, laughter & an opportunity to just loosen up and be yourself.

What the Support Group IS…

  1. Safe place to share
  2. Place of belonging
  3. Place to care for others and be cared for
  4. Place where respect if given to each member
  5. Place where confidentiality is highly regarded
  6. Place to learn
  7. Place to grow and become strong again
  8. Place where you can ‘take off your mask’

What the Support Group IS NOT…

  1. Place for selfish control
  2. Place for therapy
  3. Place for secrets
  4. Place to rescue or be rescued by others
  5. Place for perfection
  6. Place to judge others
