New 6 Week 2019 GVHD Telephone Support Group

GVHD Connect

Thursdays, October 17th - November 21st, 2019

12:00 - 1:15 pm Central Standard Time

BMT InfoNet is hosting a 6-week telephone support group for patients struggling with GVHD.  A separate telephone support group for caregivers of patents with GVHD will be scheduled later in the year.

All you need to participate in the discussion is your phone!  Although we encourage you to participate in all six sessions, you are welcome to participate in as many as your time allows.

To participate in the group, you will be asked to agree to keep the discussions confidential to protect the privacy of group members and ensure that the group is a safe and comfortable place to share experiences and concerns.
