In addition to a supportive family and a sensitive physician, a cancer support group can be like an extended family of like-minded members who can share your fears, your anxieties and your joys. Support can be found in countless places today—in groups, telephone “buddies,” or in cancer “chat rooms” on the Internet.
For guidance in selecting a support group contact your physician, local hospital or cancer organization in your community. In addition, you may contact the Cure for Lymphoma Foundation, which has a directory of support groups and a nationwide patient-to-patient telephone network. Contact CLF at 212-213-9595.
