NYOH Cancer Support Group

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



This group, led 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. Together, the group will explore:

  • Facing challenging emotions and addressing fears and worries
  • Coping strategies for hopefulness, emotional and spiritual well-being
  • Connections with other patients facing 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.
