This free meeting is open to all blood cancer patients, caregivers and family members dealing with a diagnosis of leukemia, lymphoma, Hodgkin lymphoma, myeloma or myelodysplastic syndrome..
Family support groups provide mutual support, emotional comfort and education for patients and families. They offer an opportunity to discuss anxieties and concerns with others who share the same experiences. This sharing strengthens the family bond and enhances one’s ability to cope with cancer.
