2nd Floor - 29 Building

Whether you are newly diagnosed, going through treatment, or consider yourself a survivor, this Cancer Support Group will be a safe place to talk about your feelings regarding your diagnosis and treatment.   Evidence suggests that support groups can improve quality of life for people with cancer.

People who take part in support groups believe that they can live healthier, happier lives if they spend time relating to others. They say that when they have emotional support, it is easier to deal with their health and other problems. Some find that the bonds formed between members of support groups help them feel stronger. Sharing feelings and experiences within support groups can reduce stress, fear, and anxiety and help to promote healing. 

The benefits of group support are:

  • Reduced anxiety and psychological distress
  • Reduced depression and feelings of pain
  • Improved mood and self image
  • Improved ability to cope, sexual satisfaction
  • Improved feelings of control

Jefferson Home Health Office and conference room are located on the 3rd floor at 2500 W. Sims Way, Port Townsend.
