Support Groups

A support group is the perfect place to meet others who understand what you’re going through. Share information, experiences, and support in a warm, welcoming environment.

Our support groups are unique. They are all “peer-to-peer” groups. This means everyone in the group has heard the words “you have cancer.” It also means every group is led by a breast or ovarian cancer survivor. Some groups are led by the Peer Counselors on our staff. Others are led by volunteer facilitators who are trained and supervised by our Peer Counselors.

We offer 11 different support groups every month (listed below.) Our in-person groups meet at different locations in Westchester, Putnam and Dutchess counties. We also have two telephone groups; these take place via national toll-free teleconference, making them available regardless of where you live. All of our groups are free and confidential.

Still have questions? We’ll be happy to help you find a group that’s right for you!

To learn more or to register (pre-registration is required) call our Peer Counselors at 914-962-6402, or toll-free 800-532-4290.
