The support groups of the Bavarian Cancer Research Center (BZKF) aim to help people after their cancer diagnosis and improve their quality of life. They are disease-related groups and members support each other through the commonality of “the cancer disease” by providing information and exchanging experiences. The listed support groups are open to everyone and the meetings are free of charge and timely.

  • open and in-depth conversations
    (to overcome fears and uncertainties in everyday life and to develop new life perspectives, give company in difficult life situations, etc.)
  • mutual exchange of experiences
  • helpful and comprehensive information
    (tips, hints, addresses, practical help, etc.)
  • help and referrals to specialist institutions (other social and/or medical institutions, pastoral care, etc.)

Do you need help finding an address or do you have questions about cancer? Contact us by calling our free PublicCancerHotline (0800 – 85 100 80) or email us at We are happy to help!
