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.

This group is for patients both newly diagnosed, and those who have been managing the disease for some time. We foster a mutually supportive atmosphere to promote:

  1. sharing of feelings
  2. discussing coping strategies for hopefulness and emotional/spiritual well-being
  3. addressing fears and worries
  4. connecting with people with similar struggles
