Support Groups and Programs
RBOI’s support groups, counseling, and guidance in finding financial and medical resources and assistance are available to you at any time, from pre-diagnosis throughout treatment and beyond. Wherever you are in your care, our multidisciplinary team can give you personalized attention and can help you through navigation, treatment, and survivorship.
Call the office closest to you to inquire about these groups, locations, times, and details. Some groups are available only in certain locations, but can be added to your closest office if there is enough interest. Other groups and programs may also be available. Please call our social workers.
