Support Groups

We care about the health and safety of you and your family. As you may know, Stony Brook Medicine and Stony Brook Cancer Center are proactively addressing the ongoing situation regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19). We want to assure you that your health and safety will remain our top priority. 

At this time, some of our of our support group meetings are being held virtually and others may be starting again soon in some type of format. 
If you have any questions, please contact us at (631) 216-2468 or (631) 444-4000.
We appreciate your understanding during this time. 

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 University Cancer Center offers several support groups to benefit patients with cancer.

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.
