Zoom Breast Cancer Support Groups

Women coping with breast cancer can join Zoom support groups facilitated by the Adelphi NY Statewide Breast Cancer Hotline & Support Program. Women will have the opportunity to meet with others in similar situations.

Wrote one participant in her evaluation of her experience: “Thank you for holding ZOOM meetings (and again moderating) for the metastatic group, I cannot tell you how being a part of this group (especially with all the COVID restrictions) has helped me to learn and continue to grow in my cancer journey.”

These groups are run by licensed social workers and are free. Registration is required.
