Facebook Support Group

At Memorial Hermann we understand a cancer diagnosis can make you feel alone, and we therefore recognize how crucial it is to have support during this time. We have therefore created a closed Facebook group for patients and their families to both connect with each other, and receive insight, comfort and friendship.

Join our online community today and connect with others who can share their personal experiences, ways of coping as well as helpful resources.

Our group was created to:

  • Enable an open conversation between those affected by a cancer diagnosis
  • Help newly diagnosed patients and their families learn about ways of coping
  • Offer hope and empowerment
  • Provide a non-judgmental space for patients and survivors who understand what you are going through

After joining this closed group, you can read and post messages 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, from the convenience of your computer or mobile device.
