Virginia Chapter

Young Adult Group - Norfolk

Looking for support concerning a Leukemia, Lymphoma, or Myeloma diagnosis?

The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) Family Support Groups program provides patients and their families a place to go where they can share information, education and feelings in a comfortable and caring environment.

Family Support Groups are for anyone affected by blood cancer and are free. Patients, surviors, family members and friends are all welcomed to attend. Groups generally meet once a month at a library, a local conference room or at LLS's chapters.

Two credentialed health/mental health professionals who have extensive oncology and group work experience facilitate all Family Support Groups. They're prepared to handle sensitive issues such as loss, guilt, treatment questions and family stressors.

The groups are  designed to provide mutual support and education to members who may feel a little less alone by meeting with others whose situations are similar to their own. Family Support Groups can be looked at as a coping tool, in conjunction with your or a loved one's medical treatment.

We will be meeting at:

Ronald McDonald House

This group meets once a month. They alternate between a social activity and a meeting at Ronald McDonald House. Since the young adult group is one of the underrepresented populations we serve, the group does not have to be just for blood cancer patients.
