Support Groups

The support of family, friends and colleagues can be helpful for those going through breast cancer diagnosis, treatment and beyond. Some people living with breast cancer benefit from involvement in support groups, which can help in the recovery process by offering information, emotional support and an additional support network. Health care facilities and other organizations throughout the Komen St. Louis service area host breast cancer support groups for those living with breast cancer, along with support groups for family members and friends of those with breast cancer.

Everyone has different needs, so it’s important to find a healthy support system that works best for you. Talking to a patient navigator is a good way to find a support group that fits your needs.

Before attending for the first time, we recommend contacting the group to confirm the meeting date, time and location.
