Support groups are available for various types of cancer and are open to patients as well as family members. The groups are led by a healthcare provider with expertise in the particular type of cancer.

Look Good…Feel Better
This free service is provided by certified/trained cosmetologists and demonstrates cosmetic techniques which help the cancer patient “look good and feel better” during chemotherapy or radiation treatments.
