About the DCPSP
The Duke Cancer Patient Support Program (DCPSP) provides services and resources to help support patients and their loved ones throughout their experience with cancer. Services include: Individual, couple, and family therapy, support groups, self-image resources, pet therapy, child-life services, recreational therapy, and more. All support services are provided at no charge to patients and their families.
