Our Cancer Support Group at Logan Regional Hospital offers patients and their families the opportunity to learn to cope with the psychosocial aspects of cancer diagnosis and treatment. This group is directed by licensed master's level social workers. It covers many topics that cancer patients find difficult to cope with on their own.
Although the clinicians in charge of the support group have carefully chosen topics and lesson plans to benefit the participants, they are sensitive to each group member’s needs. They have several alternate topics to choose from in addition to those planned to cover the needs of individual group members.
