Providing Support to One Another

McLeod Health helps cancer patients with more than just medicine. We offer several support groups for cancer patients and their loved ones. These monthly meetings offer comfort, teach coping skills, present information, help reduce anxiety, and provide a place for people to share common concerns and emotional support. See list below.
