Patient support resources and information

Dealing with cancer and treatment-related side effects can be tough, even for the strongest people. Beyond keeping a positive attitude and taking care of yourself, it can be helpful to talk to others who are going through the same thing.

Joining a support group can help.

People in a support group may help you cope with cancer, chemotherapy, and side effects. Support groups allow you to discuss your concerns with people who are also about to start treatment or have already been through it.

Below are resources that might have more information about chemotherapy-induced nausea and vomiting, cancer, and support groups that may help you through your treatment.
