where everyone’s welcome

Warm and welcoming groups are an integral part of the Cancer Wellness Center. They provide those diagnosed with cancer and their loved ones opportunities to share, learn and gain support from others who are going through similar experiences. Current research indicates that regular attendance in a group can improve quality of life.

Support groups

Provide patients, survivors and their loved ones with peer support to help cope with the emotional adjustments that the cancer experience demands. The Center’s professional clinical team facilitates these therapeutic groups:

  • Men’s group
  • Women’s group
  • Young women’s group (mid 30's - mid 50's)
  • Young adult group (Co-ed ages 20-40)
  • Caregiver/Significant other group
  • Women’s spirituality
  • Co-ed group (Grayslake)
  • Bereavement groups (Spousal and Non-Spousal Loss)
  • Journeys (bereaved 1+ years)

No registration is required.
