BMT InfoNet hosts support groups throughout the year for people living with graft-versus-host diseases (GVHD).  There are separate groups for patients and for caregivers.  

The next group for patients will begin September 15, 2022 and run for eight weeks. The next group for caregivers will meeting August 31, 2022.

If you're interested in joining either group, please complete the registration form by clicking the appropriate button above and we will get back in touch with you. Each group lasts 1 hour and 15 minutes and we ask that you plan to attend all eight group meetings.

The groups are moderated by a psychologist or social worker who understands the challenge of living with GVHD and is skilled at leading group discussions where participants share information and support one another.  If you have questions email help@bmtinfonet.org or phone 888-597-7674..

"I find the group incredibly validating. Before joining the group I felt anxious and fearful all the time, wondering what was normal, waiting for the shoe to drop. Now I feel acknowledged, validated, more accepting, and better able to cope and manage ongoing issues. The support group has helped me change my relationship with GVHD and my body."
