About the New Caregivers Support Group
Have you ever wanted to ask another caregiver a question about how they cope with the tasks, worries, and routines of caring for a loved one with head and neck cancer? Would you like a chance to share information and learn from others who are in your shoes?
A special support group has been formed to provide such a forum. Caregivers can benefit from sharing their particular challenges and victories, or simply hearing from others who are going through the same things. Taking care of ourselves helps us better take care of our loved ones.
We will meet on a weekly basis on Saturdays from 10-11:00 am, except for the first Saturday of each month, when the larger HNC Support Group meets. These meetings are taking place over Zoom because of the ‘safer at home’ restrictions currently in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
All are welcome to our HNC Support Group!
On the first Saturday morning of every month, HNC patients and survivors gather, chat, share personal stories/experiences and gather helpful information from others. They are of different ages, gender and race, and accompanied by family, caregivers, and/or friends. But they all have one thing in common – they or a family member have been diagnosed with Head & Neck Cancer (HNC). They are here to participate in the Head & Neck Patient Support Group at USC, to encourage and to be encouraged.
Additionally, many individuals from diverse medical and healing disciplines have taken time from their hectic schedules to join in. Doctor, Nurse, Speech Therapist, Dietitian, Journalist, Medical Office Specialist, Yoga Therapist, Research Scientist, Art Therapist, Medical Supply Vendor, Pharmacist, and Professor are just some of the “titles” that have joined our meetings as active participants.
