NYOH Cancer Support Group

A bi-weekly support group for Cancer patients of New York Oncology Hematology



This group, lead by NYOH clinical social worker Frances Ford LCSW, is for patients both newly diagnosed, and those who have been managing the disease for some time. This is an open group and you are welcome to attend whenever you can. We foster a mutually supportive atmosphere to promote:

  • Sharing of feelings
  • Discussing coping strategies for hopefulness and emotional/spiritual well-being
  • Addressing fears and worries
  • Connecting with people with similar struggles

Due to COVID-19, the NYOH Support Group is held online via Zoom. There is no cost to participate but pre-registration is required since space is limited to 15 participants per week. To register, call Frances Ford, LCSW at 518-489-3612 x 1342. Once you are registered, you will receive an email with more information on accessing the online group.
