Services

For more information about Support Services, please contact the cancer center's social worker at (209) 664-5044. An important part of Emanuel's approach to cancer care is taking care of the emotional well-being of patients and their loved ones. They offer a variety of support groups for patients and families, including:

  • Monkey Business – a support group for kids, ages 5-13, who have a loved one with cancer. Meets twice monthly on Mondays from 4:00 to 5:30 p.m.
  • Cancer in Your Life support group – open to all adult cancer patients and caregivers regardless of site and stage. Meets the first and third Tuesdays of the month from 1:00 to 2:30 p.m.
  • Career Women Support (dates to be arranged)
  • Men's Support (contact us for details)
  • Look Good, Feel Better - this program teaches beauty techniques to women who are actively undergoing cancer treatment, to help them combat the appearance-related side effects of radiation and chemotherapy. This is a free program sponsored by Emanuel Cancer Center and the American Cancer Society
