Few women today find the support they need for dealing with the implications of breast cancer. That is why breast cancer organizations have, and continue to, set up support groups and workshops for fighters and survivors. So how do you get in touch with these support groups?
Your local health care often provides such support at local hospitals. These are ongoing, more than often free, support groups for woman at all stages of diagnosis, treatment and recovery. Contact your local hospital to see if they know more, or try visiting their website.
Other organizations such as the Komen foundation, the American Cancer Society, and Cancer Information Service offer similar support groups at their local branches.
