Support Groups

Whether you’re a patient, survivor or caregiver, the cancer journey is challenging. It can make you feel alienated from others.

OSF HealthCare believes human connection can be strong medicine. Support groups allow you the chance to form bonds with people who know from experience what you are going through.

Share coping techniques, learn about new resources, find comfort and give comfort. You may find strength from the genuine and lasting bonds you form.

Check our events calendar to find a support group for you, or contact OSF Healing Pathways for more information and assistance.

Breast Cancer Support Group

This informal group brings together women who share a common bond and provides emotional and spiritual support for them.  Speakers and discussion topics are chosen by members of the group and address challenges and concerns unique to breast cancer.  

Women are encouraged to share their thoughts and concerns during the meetings. The group offers a caring and confidential environment, facilitated by one of our Cancer Navigators, a breast cancer survivor.  
Meetings will be the third Wednesday of each month from 9:30-10:30 a.m. in the OSF Saint Anthony Center for Cancer Care Library.

For information, please call (815) 227-2629. Walk-ins are always welcome!
