Cancer Support Groups

Cancer Support Group

Our ongoing support groups meet weekly and are facilitated by a Licensed, Independent, Clinical Social Worker. Support groups are open to patients at the Center who are newly diagnosed, those in treatment, and those who have completed treatment as well as patients with a cancer recurrence. We have one group that is open to caregivers.

The groups focus on learning to cope with the stress of diagnosis and the treatment process while trying hard not to let this disease take over your life.

Meetings are held once a week at the Center for Cancer Care, 620 Washington Street, Winchester. Pre-registration is required. For more information on the schedule of our groups, or to pre-register, please call 781-756-5072.

Breast Cancer Support Group

Through ongoing education and support groups, we are working to raise awareness about breast cancer and the importance of early detection through self-breast exams, regular check-ups, mammography and risk evaluation.

The Winchester Hospital Breast Care Center offers a seven-week (one evening a week) educational support group for women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer. This group is offered three times a year and focuses on stress management, nutrition, family support and coping skills throughout treatment and the recovery process. The Center also offers an ongoing educational series for breast cancer survivors, which meets five times a year to focus on topics of interest for breast cancer survivors including lymphedema, sexuality, exercise, disease recurrence and breast reconstruction.

For more information on the Breast Cancer Support Group, please call 781-756-2308.
