Group support for all cancer patients in their 20s, 30s and early 40s is available at the Laurel Amtower Cancer Institute. Meetings provide patients with any type of cancer the opportunity to socialize, share experiences and grow.

Two different support groups are available for this age bracket depending on your stage of cancer treatment — one for patients in stage 0-3 and another for patients with advanced cancer (stage 4).

Please note, these support groups are for cancer patients only. Family and friends may attend other cancer support groups offered by Sharp HealthCare.

Registration is required prior to attending.
To register and to find out if this support group is right for you, please contact the program manager by providing your name and email address in the "Learn More" box above. Someone will contact you within two business days.
