Asking for a friend: Can anyone suggest an organization that has support groups for (teen) kids of people who are battling cancer in Park Ridge? Peer groups/ counseling/ any support that can be offered. What about support groups for spouses? Any thoughts are so appreciated.

When my father was diagnosed when I was a child, we were directed to a support group through the hospital. If you haven't already, I would reach out to your doctor and/or hospital for any recommendations.

Imerman Angels is who I worked with- they pair you up with someone you can relate to. It was a BIG help!

Hi Mary. Would they talk to a person who’s been thru it? Can I help ? I’m not a medical person or therapist or doctor. Just a regular person who’s been thru it. 😏
