CancerCare provides free support services for women coping with cervical cancer, including counseling from professional oncology social workers and financial assistance.
Beginning February 4, CancerCare will also offer an online support group for women diagnosed with gynecologic and/or reproductive cancer who are currently receiving treatment. The group will be led by a professional oncology social worker.
“A diagnosis of cervical cancer can leave women feeling uncertain and alone,” says CancerCare women’s cancers program coordinator Allison Nilsen, LMSW. “Joining a support group can be a wonderful way to connect with others in a similar situation, where members can share feelings, ideas and information in a supportive environment.”
Registration is required to join this support group. After joining this password-protected group, members can read and post messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Register for this support group.
