Support Groups

Helping you process

We offer virtual support groups to help our community when they’re going through it. Whether you have cancer or you’re a caregiver, we have a support network for you.

LGBTQIA+ Patient Support Group

Available to anyone who identifies as LGBTQIA+ and is currently in or post cancer treatment. This group meets virtually on the first Tuesday of every month from 8:00 – 9:30 pm ET.

We offer the LGBTQIA+ Cancer Support Group because:

  • People who identify as LGBT face distinct challenges when it comes to cancer and many LGBT survivors do not feel welcome or understood in mainstream support groups.
  • LGBT-specific support groups are the top request made by LGBT cancer survivors, but there is a shortage of these groups in the U.S.

The LGBTQIA+ Cancer Support Group is facilitated by Tom Pier, LCSW, OSWC, CMF. Tom is a certified oncology social worker with a 26+ year career.

Caregiver Support Group

Available to anyone who identifies as a caregiver to someone with cancer. This group meets virtually the first and third Thursdays of every month from 7:00 – 9:00 pm PT and is only available to people living in California.

We offer the caregiver support group because:

  • Being a caregiver can have a significant impact on your mental and physical wellbeing. Approximately 40% of caregivers experience anxiety and/or depression and a majority of caregivers experience sleep problems.
  • Being a caregiver comes with a range of new and challenging experiences and emotions. The role of caregiver has shifted over time, and is now more intensive than ever before as most cancer treatment is provided in an outpatient setting.

The Caregiver Support Group is facilitated by Jill Pomerantz, LCSW.

Program Impact

Since 2021, our support groups have helped people with cancer and their caregivers find a community to share their experiences in a safe and supportive space.
