Bereavement, or grief, is how one reacts to a loss. There is no right or wrong way to grieve after a significant loss. Many people learn to move on with their grief, even through it is extremely difficult.

Fox Chase Cancer Center's Bereavement Support Groups help people learn to cope with their loss.

Contact Sheila Amrhein at 215-728-2853 to discuss your interests or needs for a grief support group.
