NYOH Cancer Support Group


New York Oncology Hematology patients are invited to participate in a free support group.

Open to NYOH patients who are both newly diagnosed with cancer and those who have been managing the disease for some time, the group meets bi-weekly at our Latham office, 1003 New Loudon Road, in the second floor conference center. The group meets every other Wednesday, from 4:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m.

The groups are led by Edward Dick, LCSW, a psychotherapist in private practice, who has been serving cancer patients and their families for more than 30 years.

During the sessions, participants are encouraged to:

  • Share feelings
  • Discuss coping strategies for hopefulness and emotional/spiritual well-being
  • Address fears and worries
  • Connect with people facing similar struggles
