Support Groups

Support groups offer an opportunity to talk with others who are facing the same challenges. This can provide comfort, stress release, and a safe place to share thoughts and concerns. Stony Brook Cancer Center offers several support groups to benefit patients with cancer.

Some of our groups meet in person and others meet only virtually, via a set-up like Zoom. Some are currently on pause. EAth method is noted next to teh group name.

Our HealthConnect referral service has the most up-to-date information on the groups' specific meeting dates and times. For more information and to register, call HealthConnect at (631) 444-4000.
