There is always someone else who understands what you are going through. There is always someone that wants to hear YOU because they were heard at the group as they have walked the walk and talked the talk as a patient or carer.
People meet others that have the same type of cancer. Both they and their carers can compare experiences and share what has worked for them.
Presently, we have a Resource Office who gathers information from different Government Departments on assistance of many different kinds to share with the group.
Apart from what the support group can offer you, you will bring your experience to the group. This helps others for no matter how big or small your contribution, every bit of information is valuable to the group.
