Emotional Support

Many patients are overwhelmed by a surge of emotions with their diagnosis. Patients heal better and outcomes are improved when they are able to get help with the emotional and psychological impact of cancer. We have professionals who can address patient’s feelings and emotional concerns. Individual and group counseling is available on-site, as well as support groups and other wellness classes.

Support Groups

Hope Blooms Breast Cancer Support Group:

Hope Blooms is a monthly community support group whose purpose is to reach out to women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer and have the opportunity to share their experiences. The group offers a sharing opportunity for women to express their physical and emotional needs with others who have had similar experiences. Speakers in the medical field are invited to meetings to discuss the latest advances in breast surgery, treatment, reconstruction and coping with emotional aspects of breast cancer.
