Q: I’m thinking of joining a support group. How do I know what kind is best for me?
A: A support group is a great place to share your breast cancer experience openly with people who understand. Fortunately, today there are many different options for support. Whether in a hospital, a church or in your local community, support groups offer information and discussion about survivorship issues. You can decide what feels best for you and helps you to heal as you connect with other positive people.
If you use a computer, virtual support groups and message boards are also available.
