Treatments & Programs

NYOH Cancer Support Group

NYOH is pleased to provide two free cancer support groups.

Open to both newly diagnosed patients and those who have been managing

the disease for some time, we offer a cancer support group for those facing multiple types of cancer, as well as one specifically geared to those being treated for brain tumors.

During the sessions, participants are encouraged to share feelings, discuss coping strategies, address fears and worries and connect with others who are facing similar struggles.
