Experiencing emotional trials from the diagnosis of cancer is normal, but that doesn’t make it easy. Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU believes that support groups are an important part of cancer care. Support groups provide those diagnosed with cancer a place to learn information about their cancer; a place to share feelings, experiences and concerns with others who have the same cancer diagnosis; and a place which gives emotional and spiritual nourishment. Support Groups connect people facing similar challenges. Educational activities are offered as needed and groups are led by Psych-Oncology staff. Days, times, and frequencies of meetings vary.

SCI Support Groups take place at:
Side-by-Side Place of Wellness,
Simmons Cancer Institute at SIU.
3rd Floor, Room 3015
315 W. Carpenter Street.
Springfield, IL 62794
