Cancer patients, besides having to deal with medical and physical challenges, also have to cope with the many emotions that come with the disease. The experience each cancer patient goes through varies from one person to another but one common thing is that all need a good support system to cope with the different stages in their healing journey.

Besides providing a platform for sharing of experiences and information exchange, a cancer support group also promotes a patient-to-patient network which can result in comfort and emotional support for patients and thus improve their quality of life.
