Cancer and OCD Support Groups Crystal Lake

Moving from fear to hope

A diagnosis of cancer or obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) can trigger an avalanche of questions and feelings:
"I can't believe it."
"I'm scared."
"What's treatment like?"
"Is God punishing me?"
"How will this affect my family?"
"Will I get through this?"

But Willow Creek's support groups (hosted at our South Barrington location) can help you survive and thrive during your journey. Whether you are directly or indirectly affected by a cancer or OCD diagnosis, Willow Creek's support groups are a safe place for individuals—and their families—to share with one another, support one another, and learn together from their experiences.

Cancer Support 

Cancer Support helps participants cope with the emotional, spiritual, relational, and physical challenges that accompany cancer. Through large-group teaching, a devotional time, and small-group discussion, participants can experience joy, hope, and healing in this caring, Christ-centered community.
