Sometimes the fight against cancer

can make you feel isolated and alone. Sharing your emotions, thoughts, questions and answers with other people who understand what you’re going through can help you maintain strength, optimism and peace of mind during your battle against cancer. Whatever form of cancer you’re facing, a variety of support groups in northern Indiana and southern Michigan are available through the Advanced Centers for Cancer Care to comfort you through diagnosis, treatment and recovery – including Westville, South Bend, Michigan City, LaPorte, St. Joseph, Benton Harbor, Buchanan, Niles and more.

If you have a support group you would like to see listed, please contact us.
