Support Groups


  • Fighting Chance : Free cancer counseling center serving the East End of Long Island since 2002. Cancer can be a very isolating experience, especially in a rural setting like the East End. Our groups give patients a chance to feel less alone, form supportive relationships with other patients, gather information and share feelings that often are best understood by fellow cancer patients. The staff of Fighting Chance and patient volunteers offer supportive discussions on topics such as health concerns, health maintenance, emotional and relationship issues, resource finding and problem solving. Located in Sag Harbor, NY. (631) 725-4646

  • Young Adults Survivors of Suffolk County: At the request of a wonderful young lady who is currently battling cancer, the Stan Wong Foundation will be working on establishing a Young Adults Suvivors Support Group in Eastern Suffolk county. If you know of anyone who could benefit from such a group, please contact Lisa at (631) 445-4600.
