Support Groups & Other Activities
In addition to providing for your medical needs during treatment, the patient support services team also places a priority on your emotional wellbeing. We are happy to refer you to one of the many local support groups in the area.
Currently all of our support groups are being held virtually to protect our patients and staff during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual Support Groups
Support groups can help resolve feelings of isolation and loneliness and are a source of valuable information. Many participants find that the community, learning resources and coping skills that are created through ongoing open sharing is highly rewarding and valuable. Texas Oncology offers support groups throughout the state of Texas to offer our patients and their family the support they need.
Our Dallas and Fort Worth area support groups bring patients in the surrounding area together to share their experiences and learn more about living with cancer. Learn More.
Open Enrollment Support Group
Texas Oncology’s open enrollment support group is led by a licensed social worker and is a place for cancer patients to meet others with similar struggles, share stories and suggestions, and find support, all while fostering relationships. This group is available for patients throughout the state and does not require a session commitment to participate. Patients are able to register for the sessions that are available and convenient for their schedule. View current open enrollment sessions.
