A Support Group Can Truly Make a Difference
It can be invaluable to have additional support at this time, beyond family, friends, and even our team here at Immunity Therapy Center™. Whether facing a cancer diagnosis or a chronic degenerative, autoimmune, or infectious disease; there is a different, special bond to be found in the support of those who are, or have been, just where you are. This is the value of a support group.
Finding a Support Group
First and foremost, think of your own wellbeing. This is a time to honor your comfort zone. Which of the following most appeals to you?
• The anonymity of an online forum.
• The in-person connection of a local meeting.
• The no-pressure dynamic of a private social media group.
Next, we recommend beginning an online search. The internet is a great resource for locating the best support group for your unique needs.
If you prefer a national organization/forum, start with a general search including terms like your type of cancer/disease, and the type of organization you seek.
For local meetings, try meetup.com, a website that instantly connects you to nearby groups in your area of interest.
For social media, Facebook offers the most expansive opportunity for communication, but Twitter and Instagram are also sources of support, solidarity, and inspiration.
