A cancer diagnosis is difficult to understand not only for the patient, but also for his or her family. We offer a lending library of books and videos, as well as other supportive services to those who want more information.

Local support groups held in Sheboygan include a prostate cancer support group led by our Patient Navigator and TLC, a support group for all cancer types.

We also have wigs, hats, turbans, and other head wear items available to those who experience hair loss as a result of cancer treatment.

Our care team is also committed to community outreach and risk-factor education, taking part in various speaking opportunities and educational events. If you are interested in having someone from our team speak to your group, please contact our Education & Community Events Coordinator at (920) 459-4636.
