Support Groups

Cancer is a tough, life-changing experience. To help make that journey easier, Northwest Georgia Oncology Centers (NGOC) is proud to support Loving Arms Cancer Outreach, a not-for-profit organization designed to help patients and their families receive the cancer support, education and outreach they need.

Founded by two oncology nurses, Loving Arms‘ services include emotional support, financial assistance and transportation to treatments with an opportunity to get involved via support group meetings and fundraisers. Loving Arms’ executive board consists of nurses, cancer survivors, cancer patients, and people from the community.
