Caring Resources Near You

Dealing with cancer is hard for both patients and family members. And in many ways, our practice functions as a very caring support group. But there are other groups outside our office that can provide patients and families with added information, guidance and an unparalleled understanding of living through cancer.

Here for the Girls (Beyond Boobs!) Support Group

Sentara Support Groups

  • Sentara Caregiver Support Group - Caring for a loved one with cancer can be overwhelming and isolating. Caregivers balance multiple roles while navigating a complex medical system and are challenged with maintaining a sense of normalcy while living in a situation that feels far from normal.

Chemo Angels

If you or a loved one are just beginning IV chemotherapy treatment and would appreciate positive support in the form of weekly cards or letters from caring, encouraging people, consider applying for a Chemo Angel.
