CHAPEL HILL, N.C. - Men who have become single fathers as a result of cancer now have a new resource - UNC’s Comprehensive Cancer Support Program (CCSP) began offering a monthly educational series and support program in October of 2010. Group facilitators Justin Yopp, PhD, and Donald Rosenstein, MD, say that while information is available for single fathers due to divorce, very little attention has been focused on single fathers due to cancer.

Any father with a child at home who has lost his wife to cancer is invited to attend the support group. There is no cost to attend, child care is provided, and the family does not have to be affiliated with UNC to take part.

For more information about this support group, email Dr. Yopp An icon indicating that a link will launch an email program. or call him at 919-445-5415.
