** As of March 2020, all CSC support groups are being held virtually **
Our Support Groups provide an environment for people, who are affected by cancer, to meet regularly to sustain and encourage each other by sharing experiences. Check the calendar for the support group meetings. All participants who wish to attend a support group are required to meet with the Lauren, our Clinical Program Director for orientation. Contact us for an appointment: firstname.lastname@example.org or call (406) 582-1600.
