Living with Cancer

The following classes are offered free of charge to anyone living with cancer (not limited to UCSF patients), as well as their caregivers. They are co-sponsored by the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine and the UCSF Ida & Joseph Friend Cancer Resource Center.

To register for any of these classes, please call the Cancer Resource Center at 415-885-3693. You will be asked to fill out a Health History form prior to your first class.

Support Group for Cancer Patients
We host a support group for cancer patients with facilitator Patty Moran, PhD on Wednesdays from 5:20-6:50 pm. This  group is for people with any type of cancer, in any stage. Please note that this group is for patients only, rather than caregivers. To register for this group, please call Patty Moran, PhD at 415-353-9745.

The UCSF Cancer Resource Center also holds several support groups for people with cancer and their caregivers.

Online Course for Caregivers
We also have an online course for caregivers of people with serious illness:
Caregivers: Support for Family Caregivers of Loved Ones with Serious Illness.
