The Abramson Cancer Center at Chester County Hospital offers both support groups and programs to help patients deal with the often overwhelming emotional effects of cancer.
Meetings are held at Chester County Hospital and other sites. The format varies from an open forum of discussion to planned educational presentations. In addition, patients also are welcome to attend support groups sponsored by the Abramson Cancer Center for areas such as bone marrow transplant, brain tumors, lung cancer and advanced cancer care.
Additional cancer-related support groups and events can be found at Abramson Cancer Center Events.
