  • Psychological effects of cancer

Head and Neck Cancer Support Groups at UCLA

Our support groups give patients an opportunity to learn from one another. You can receive emotional support from other people with similar experiences. As one survivor said, “No one knows what you are going through until they’ve walked a mile in your shoes.”
