Breast Cancer Support Group

Doctors Community Hospital
8118 Good Luck Road
Lanham, MD 20706

From managing the side effects of treatment to coping with body image anxieties, women who are diagnosed with breast cancer often encounter physical and emotional challenges. However, they don’t have to face that battle alone!

At Doctors Community Hospital's Center for Comprehensive Breast Care, our free breast cancer support group was designed to empower women within a nurturing and compassionate environment. At monthly meetings, women are encouraged to:

- Share their experiences – providing hope and encouragement to others
- Learn about the latest healthcare innovations – becoming well-informed survivors
- Develop friendships – creating comradeship among those who have similar experiences

Our support group is facilitated by a certified breast cancer navigator and women’s health specialist. Along with inviting special guests to present on various health and healing topics, breast cancer survivors often offer one-on-one support and reassurance to women who are newly diagnosed.

Location: North Building, 4th Floor, Room 415
