Ocular Melanoma Support Groups

The MRF's CURE OM initiative is excited to partner with Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) Hospital's Oncology Social Work Program to offer virtual support groups to the primary and metastatic ocular melanoma (OM) community. 

These support groups meet the first Wednesday of the month via a virtual platform so individuals from across the country can join either by phone or internet. Licensed TJU Social Workers facilitate the groups in a private and confidential setting. 

2019 Dates:

This year we are excited to offer groups for both primary and metastatic ocular melanoma patients, as well as a group especially for caregivers. Each group will meet on a Wednesday at 1pm ET, on the following dates:

  • February 6
  • March 6
  • April 3
  • May 1
  • Remaining 2019 dates coming soon!

Discussion topics for each group will be annouced in the near future.
