Frankly Speaking About Cancer

ADULT PROGRAMS  

"The highest compliment you can give is
to let other cancer survivors know about us."

Our professionally led programs are offered in a home-like setting and are available to people with cancer, their families and friends. Based on five core components which are woven into all aspects of our services - Support Programs, Education, Healthy Lifestyle, Social Connections and Resources - the Cancer Support Community Greater Miami is here for you. All programs are FREE OF CHARGE.


HOW DO I GET STARTED?
The first step to participate in our programs is to attend an Introductory Meeting. Introductory Meetings are informal drop-in sessions where people come to the Cancer Support Community Greater Miami and learn about our FREE cancer programs.


WEEKLY SUPPORT GROUPS
Ongoing, weekly support groups, led by licensed mental health professionals are at the heart of our program. Our groups can help you maintain hope, regain a sense of control, and let you know that you are not alone in this time of need. We have face-to-face and internet support groups in English and Spanish. A brief interview is required to join these groups. Please call 305-668-5900 to schedule an interview.


MONTHLY DISEASE SPECIFIC NETWORKING GROUPS
Groups for cancer patients, family members and friends to share feelings and concerns about particular diagnoses or issues. As is true of all the programs we offer, these Networking Groups are led by licensed mental health professionals.


ONGOING EDUCATION
Ongoing Education is designed to create a platform to teach methods for coping, stress reduction and other life skills. These classes (ongoing in structure or a complete course over several weeks) vary according to our members’ interests and available local experts.


HEALTHY LIFESTYLE
Educational programs which provide an opportunity to learn more about nutrition, relaxation, exercise and other topics specific to individuals with cancer and their caregivers.


SOCIAL PROGRAMS
Informal gatherings that offer a wonderful opportunity to meet and spend time in the company of others who are going through a cancer experience as patients, survivors or caregivers of someone with cancer.


CANCER SUPPORT SOURCE

your concerns with cancer?

NEW** CancerSupportSource – CSS is a free service to help you rate your cancer-related concerns (fatigue, family issues, insurance, etc.). Fill out a brief online survey and CSS will provide you with a Personal Support Care Plan to take control of your life after a cancer diagnosis. You can complete the survey on site or from the comfort of your own home. Call and sign up today for this free service!


ONLINE GROUPS
We have found that women with breast cancer who used a real-time, professionally facilitated, Internet-based support group successfully reduced their depression, distress and negative reactions to pain while increasing their zest for life and spirituality. The positive findings from this pilot research study have led us to the development of various online support groups (for all cancer diagnoses) available through our Online Community at THIS LINK.
