Justin Yopp, PhD is a clinical psychologist at the University of North Carolina and is a member of the UNC Comprehensive Cancer Support Program. His clinical practice focuses on providing therapeutic services to both pediatric and adult patients with or affected by cancer. 
In 2010, Dr. Yopp and his colleague, Dr. Don Rosenstein, developed a support program for widowed fathers who lost their wives to cancer. They currently run a support group for widowed fathers, are conducting research in the field, and have created an online resource of this population of widowers: www.singlefathersduetocancer.org
The Single Fathers Due to Cancer Program at UNC is dedicated to helping the tens of thousands of fathers who have lost their wives/partners to cancer and who are figuring out how to be an “only” parent to a grieving child. The program is first-of-its-kind in the United States and has a website offering resources, information and support to widowed fathers: http://singlefathersduetocancer.org. The site includes a series of short videos of widowed fathers discussing their experiences.
