Thank you for this information!

Does anyone know of a support group for the spouses/families and close friends (often primary caregivers) of those stricken with cancer?

Dear Diana, you sound like a person that is experiencing this awful situation.
Yes....there are many support groups. First check with medical center treating a family member or friend. They will give you a list of support groups that specifically handle care-givers and/or family members.
