Shared experiences and mutual understanding can help reduce isolation and strengthen your abilities to cope.
Support groups are often made up of patients with the same type of cancer. The majority of the groups at FORCE are facilitated by healthcare professionals for people with a diagnosis and some are for the people supporting them too. A few groups are run by patients and carers with occasional input from healthcare professionals.
All groups listed below meet at the FORCE Cancer Support Centre.
