CANCER SUPPORT GROUPS
Cancer support groups and services in the Triangle
These cancer support groups help patients and their families by offering a safe place to share feelings and emotions as they navigate through a cancer diagnosis and recovery.

Cornucopia provides free support services and support group meetings for anyone touched by cancer, including patients families and caregivers. Support can range from counseling, support groups, additional therapies and meal prep services.
