The Cancer Support Group for Women
The women in our group – who range in age from 30 to 80 – represent many different stages of cancer treatment and are able to offer advice on coping with a diagnosis, provide insight on managing the side effects of treatment, and help sister cancer patients deal with the flux of emotions. We’re here whenever you need extra support and encouragement, or when you wish to share a joy or victory. And if it makes you feel more comfortable, a female support person is welcome to attend with you.
