Sometimes life can take an unexpected turn. Sometimes we have to learn new skills and routines. We find fresh ways to cope and we learn to see in different ways. But you don't have to learn these skills alone because whatever your situation, there are others who can help you by sharing their own, similar experiences.
That's why Chesapeake Regional Medical Center offers support groups focusing on various medical conditions for you, your family and loved ones.
All of us at Chesapeake Regional Medical Center genuinely wish you the greatest possible health and comfort. You may find these services and support groups beneficial to cancer patients and their loved ones.
