Virtual interactive groups led by April Hirschberg, MD and offered through the Mass General Cancer Center Waltham.

This program is designed for individuals without a cancer diagnosis but who carry a genetic variant putting them at higher risk for cancer. The program will provide critical tools to help individuals cope with the experience of being identified to be at high genetic risk for cancer.

During eight, 90-minute weekly sessions, this program will help participants:

  • Learn self-care techniques, through relaxation, mindful awareness and adaptive thought patterns
  • Reduce stress and physical/emotional symptoms associated with being at high risk for cancer
  • Cope with and manage the increased cancer risk and the ongoing surveillance for cancer
  • Promote a sense of control, optimism, acceptance and well-being
