2015 BREAST CANCER SUPPORT GROUPS
It’s not too late to sign up for a support group!!!
Breast cancer can cause many feelings to emerge, such as shock, confusion, fear, sadness, anger and uncertainty. Our support groups provide the opportunity for participants to share their feelings and experiences with the guidance of social workers and social work interns.
The Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support is offering three support groups for women with breast cancer. Participants will have the opportunity to talk openly and confidentially about their concerns.
Two groups will meet at the Adelphi School of Social Work in Garden City and the other is a Virtual Support Group.
Virtual Support Group
(Ongoing) Tuesdays, 12:00 – 1:00 p.m.
Having difficulty getting out of the house but still need support? This group will be conducted virtually through the use of google hangouts. Any survivor is welcome to join the group. Not sure how to join a group through google hangouts? Call Erin Nau, LCSW at 516-877-4314 to sign up or click here
(Ongoing) Wednesdays, 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
