Peer Support Groups

“Peer support” is a term that is used to refer to support and help received from fellow patients with a similar condition. Peer support facilitators in ARC Cancer Support  Centres are trained to support the group.

The groups provide support to people with all types of cancer and operate on a drop-in basis at any of our centres. No appointment is necessary.
