The Esophagectomy support group meets every fourth Monday of each month. Men and women diagnosed with esophageal cancer who are considering surgery or who have had surgery are invited to attend a monthly support group sponsored by Fox Chase Cancer Center.

Examples of ostomies include colostomy and urostomy. If you or someone you know has an ostomy and could use a little extra help and support, please join us for a monthly psychoeducational support group.
