  • provide reassurance from others who have already traveled the road
  • offer practical information and resources needed to make informed decisions concerning treatments and lifestyle changes
  • enhance and strengthen coping skills that may break down during a crisis
  • provide a unique social network that may reduce feelings of isolation and reinforce a positive, hopeful attitude
