There are many support and educational 

groups that offer general information to

people with cancer.

Most of these groups are somewhat interested in alternative therapies. They have begun to include speakers on complementary and some alternative therapies at their meetings.

This is caused by the growing patient demand. It is a good thing. These organizations offer lots of help to patients. They are involved in national, regional or local advocacy and you can bring your concerns to them. Most work with specific types of cancer.
