Yes, there are support groups and resources available for families dealing with stomach cancer. These groups can provide a safe space for sharing experiences, advice, and emotional support. Here are a few options to consider:
American Cancer Society (ACS): The ACS offers a variety of resources for cancer patients and their families, including online communities and support groups. They have a dedicated section on their website for stomach cancer, where you can find information and connect with others going through similar experiences.
No Stomach For Cancer: This is a global advocacy organization focused on stomach cancer. They provide resources, support, and education for patients and families affected by the disease. Their website offers information on support groups, webinars, and other helpful resources.
Debbie's Dream Foundation: The Debbie's Dream Foundation is committed to raising awareness, funding research, and providing support for stomach cancer patients globally, with the ultimate goal of finding a cure.
Local Hospitals and Cancer Centers: Many hospitals and cancer centers offer support groups specifically for patients and families dealing with stomach cancer. Reach out to your local healthcare providers to inquire about any available resources in your area.
I hope this helps!
