Cancer Support Groups

A diagnosis of cancer can be stressful for you and your family. Smilow Cancer Hospital at Yale New Haven, in collaboration with Yale Cancer Center, is pleased to offer a wide range of supportive services, including support groups for patients and their families. Support groups provide the opportunity to receive emotional and educational support and to talk with others who are undergoing similar treatment or who have successfully completed treatment.
