UPCOMING SUPPORT GROUPS

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. Two groups will meet at the Adelphi School of Social Work in Garden City and the other will be a Virtual Support Group.
