Why Join a Support Group?

A support group provides opportunities for people with like-experiences to share personal coping strategies, or firsthand information about cancer and associated treatments. The common experience shared amongst members in a support group often means they have similar decisions to make, or side effects to manage or feelings to cope with. Whether you are a person living with or beyond cancer, caring for a loved one or coping with a loss, a support group might be right for you.

Alternatively, we offer short-term individual support. To talk with someone on our team to see what type of support may be right for you, please call us at 908.658.5400 or email us at programteam@crossroads4hope.org

Benefits of seeking support within the CR4H community may include:

Feeling less lonely, isolated or judged.

Improving skills to cope with challenges.

Staying motivated to manage chronic conditions or stick to treatment plans.

Reducing distress, depression, anxiety or fatigue.

Getting practical feedback about treatment options.

Improving understanding of cancer and your own experience with it.

Talking openly and honestly about your feelings.

Gaining a sense of empowerment, control or hope.

Learning about health, economic or social resources.
