Having the support of others while going through cancer treatment can be important to the healing process. Naturally, most patients first turn to their family and friends for encouragement and emotional support. But something quite valuable can be gained by participating in a group with people who are undergoing a similar situation. Many patients have found great strength and encouragement through support groups.
A mutual support group can make a significant contribution in restoring a sense of well-being. When the group networks with a caring medical team, the patient and his/her family can more readily move toward recovery despite any limitations of cancer.
