Healthcare Professionals: Living with Cancer and Caregivers Support Group

Support Groups

4th Wednesday of the month | 7:00 PM – 8:30 PM | Virtual

Every day, healthcare professionals dedicate a significant amount of effort to caring for others. If you’re a healthcare professional and either you or someone you know has received a cancer diagnosis, we invite you to join our monthly virtual support group. This group offers a nurturing space for you to take a moment for self-care, share personal journeys and experiences, and foster community connections. It’s important to note that no one will be asked to provide medical advice or expertise in this group. We welcome providers from all disciplines, and all the services provided by Gilda’s Club Chicago, including support groups, are completely free of charge.
