CHC – The Cancer & Hematology Centers

Support Groups

Treating cancer means more than just attacking the disease. It means treating and supporting the whole person. It means making sure loved ones have the resources they need.

Beyond the services CHC provides, we have found these resources to be helpful for our patients.

Gilda’s Club offers free social and emotional assistance to men, women, and children with cancer, their families and friends. Members attend group sessions, lectures, workshops, seminars, and social activities with the goal of learning to live with cancer, whatever the outcome.

To learn more, visit, or call (616) 453-8300.
