Dealing with cancer is hard for both patients and family members. And in many ways, our practice functions as a very caring support group. But there are other groups outside our office that can provide patients and families with added information, guidance and an unparalleled understanding of living through cancer.

Sentara Caregiver Support Group - Caring for a loved one with cancer can be overwhelming and isolating. Caregivers balance multiple roles while navigating a complex medical system and are challenged with maintaining a sense of normalcy while living in a situation that feels far from normal.
The Sentara Cancer Caregiver Telephone Support Group launched February 1, 2018. Meetings occur on the 1st Thursday of every month. It is a support group for caregivers to come together, in a safe environment, and share their experiences with others going through a similar journey. It gives caregivers the opportunity to get and give support while navigating the unique challenges of caring for a loved one with cancer.
For more information about the Sentara Cancer Caregiver Telephone Support Group, please contact Elana Campbell, LCSW, at (757) 388-4390.
