Here for You
Our compassionate support staff offers well-rounded services for your body, mind and spirit.
Support Groups and Classes
Find the emotional support you need on your cancer journey. Virginia Mason Franciscan Health Cancer Care offers support groups and classes that provide support and information every step of the way.
Why join a support group?
Support groups provide a safe environment for people to share their feelings and learn from others who are facing similar challenges. Our patients tell us that our support groups have helped them:
- Manage the strong emotions that often arise when you receive a cancer diagnosis, such as anger, loneliness, isolation, fear and a sense of loss
- Develop a sense of belonging by connecting with others who are living with cancer
- Exchange practical information and advice, which can create a sense of control and hope
- Talk about experiences that may seem too difficult to share with loved ones
Find a cancer group, class or event
We sponsor support classes throughout the area at our cancer facilities and clinics. We also offer educational and informative sessions called Health Talks. This is made possible through collaboration of our hospitals, physicians and other expert providers. In addition, we often support community events such as annual expos, runs, walks and education and research opportunities.
