Living with Cancer Networking Groups

Feeling overwhelmed and uncertain about what lies ahead as you travel through the unfamiliar world of cancer? Come meet others who are just diagnosed, in treatment or post-treatment.  Come learn from educational presentations and open discussion, and explore what this journey looks like for you.  Family and friends are welcome!  These are drop-in groups, no registration necessary, but if you have questions or would like to talk with someone before you attend, please call (206) 297-2500.
