The Laryngectomy support group meets the fourth Thursday of every month. Laryngectomy is a surgical procedure to remove the larynx (voice box), often because of cancer. “The Speakeezy Club of Delaware Valley” is a Laryngectomy support group that provides information, education, and psychosocial support to patients and their families. Support is provided by a Social Worker and a Speech-Language Pathologist.
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.
This group, designed for esophagectomy patients, helps people learn about the procedure and share their experiences with others. The group is made up of newly diagnosed patients, those currently undergoing treatment, and those who are post-treatment patients who share successful ways of coping.
This is an open-ended support group for any woman with a diagnosis of breast cancer. Women can join at any time during or after treatment for support, information and sharing. To register for the March 3rd session, or for more information, call Denise Young, MS, LSW, at 215-728-2670.
