Can a support group help you with soft tissue sarcoma?

ANSWER

Support groups can help you talk about feelings and concerns you may not want to share with family or friends. They may also be a way to learn more about what to expect and how your life may change. Many people find that support groups can help ease their fears and lift their spirits. Some groups are led by professionals who guide the discussions, while others are led by people who are going through the same things you are. There also are groups for family members or caregivers. Your doctors or nurses or a counselor can give you a list of groups that might help.
