06/21/2017

Lakewood, N.J. – The Cancer Support Community at Monmouth Medical Center, Southern Campus (MMCSC) invites caregivers of oncology patients to call in for support. The Cancer Support Community has recognized the difficulty for caregivers to find the time to stop in for a support group, so they’ve created a pilot program to bring the support to the caregiver.

This support group will be held by telephone from 8 – 9 p.m. on July 26, 2017. Registration is required by calling 732-923-6090. Once you’re registered, you will receive a dial-in code and access information.
