Strength in Numbers: Support Groups 
Our support group meetings are designed to allow the person with cancer, family, and friends to share concerns, information, and support. All the CSCVVSB’s support groups are facilitated by licensed mental health professionals who are specialized in cancer care. Please attend an Orientation/Welcome Meetings to find more information about our support groups.  

For support group schedule and more information, please go to our Calendar or contact us at Programs@cancersupportvvsb.org or 805-379-4777. 

“It is such a comfort to be with others who truly understand my experience in a way that my loving family and friends cannot. I learn so much from my fellow group members, of both a practical and profound nature. I give and receive support.” 
– Kathy MacDonald, member of a People with Cancer Group
