Patient support groups

The KHCC has several support groups in place that are very successful in improving the state of mind of current patients undergoing cancer treatment.

The support groups comprise of both current and past patients as well as volunteers, providing emotional support even after the treatment ends. Groups like this have a hugely positive effect as current cancer sufferers are shown what life after treatment is like and have a wealth of positive mental attitudes surrounding them. There are three groups:

  • SANAD Group - For breast cancer survivors
  • Amal Group- For parents whose children have cancer
  • Basma Group - For KHCC cancer patients

This expansion doubled the capacity of their existing Jordan centre and helped provide more advanced spaces for research, education and patient care. These new improvements further established the King Hussein Cancer Foundation as the leading facility within the Middle East for cancer treatment.
