The best cancer care includes more than medical treatment. Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center offers support groups for people living with cancers, including breast, gynecologic and head and neck, as well as services to help you with the emotional, psychological, financial and lifestyle aspects of cancer.
From nutrition and mind-body care to guidance from nurse navigators and oncology social workers, we’re here for you.
Whether you or a loved one has cancer or you’re caring for someone who does, it helps to connect with others who are going through similar experiences. Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center hosts cancer support groups and free workshops and health and wellness events for people living with cancer.
Scripps currently hosts the following support groups for people with specific cancer types. For information about other cancer support groups in the San Diego community, call the American Cancer Society at 800-227-2345.
Although all of our Scripps on-site classes and support groups have been temporarily suspended, Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center patients are welcome to join any of the online support groups offered by MD Anderson Cancer Center as part of our partnership. The sessions are facilitated by MD Anderson social work counselors and provide an opportunity for patients, family members and friends to meet others in similar circumstances, develop new relationships and find out how others cope during this time of increased distress. Register online with your MRN and indicate you are a Scripps MD Anderson patient.
Scripps MD Anderson Cancer Center offers a comprehensive range of support services and resources to help our patients, family members and caregivers manage the challenges of cancer.
