Being diagnosed with cancer can be a frightening experience, leaving you both physically and mentally exhausted. We understand the anxiety you may be feeling and are here to help you through your cancer journey. Finding the right support group can be an important part in your road to recovery. At Clearview, we offer a variety of support groups that give patients and their families an opportunity to share and learn in a compassionate environment. Find the one that is right for you!
Clearview Adolescent and Young Adult Cancer Program
Coping with Cancer
The group is led by Ron Williams, M.S. in Counseling, Pastoral Counselor. He has also authored several books dealing with grief and loss. This class is for patients as well as family members but more designed for patients. It is a group style class that allows patients to talk about what they are going through and what is “normal” for cancer patients. The class will help patients gain a sense of empowerment, improve coping skills, reduce stress and anxiety, and provide support.
