Support Groups

General Cancer Support Group

This support group is offered through a collaborative partnership between West Chester Hospital and Cancer Support Community. The support group is open to all cancer patients, family members, caregivers and survivors — and anyone who has been affected by cancer. The purpose of this group meeting is to connect and share with others who are also experiencing personal journeys with cancer. All group sessions are hosted by a licensed mental health professional. Registration is not required.
