Resources and Support Groups
At the University of Chicago Medicine
The University of Chicago Medicine and Comer Children's Hospital provide many resources to help adolescents, young adults and their families living with cancer. Our resources include:
- Childhood Cancer Survivors Center: The impact of cancer and its treatment can last long after a child has been cured. This unique center offers long-term follow-up through adulthood to monitor the impact of the disease and treatment on the patient’s growth, organs, fertility, emotional development, and more.
- Ronald McDonald House: Located near Comer Children's Hospital, the Ronald McDonald House provides a home away from home for families while their child is hospitalized for cancer care.
- Cancer Resource Center: In partnership with the American Cancer Society, we have created an all-inclusive resource center that offers health information and social services to cancer patients and their families.
- Gilda's Club Chicago at the University of Chicago: Gilda's Club Chicago visits our medical center once a week to offer educational programs, support groups and healing workshops for cancer patients and their families.
