Support Groups and Calendar of Events

The Schwab Family Cancer Center works closely with the American Cancer Society to provide support services to patients and their families.  These cooperative programs include:

Look Good...Feel Better is a free, non-medical program to help women undergoing cancer treatment to look good, improve their self-esteem and offset appearance-related changes from cancer treatments.  The program helps patients manage their treatment and recovery with greater confidence.  During these group workshops, patients in various stages of treatment receive make-up, hair tips and personal attention from professionals trained to meet their needs.  Professional advice also is offered on wigs, scarves, and accessories.

WMHS also offers the Hand-In-Hand Cancer Connection, which is open to all cancer patients and their families in the tri-state area.  This cancer support group meets the throughout the year and each meeting features a guest speaker and topic of interest.
