BIPOC Cancer Support Group

Home / Services / Support Groups / BIPOC Cancer Support Group

People who identify as members of black, indigenous, and other people of color (BIPOC) and are living with a cancer diagnosis or have a loved one living with a cancer diagnosis are invited to join this group. In addition to connecting to other members of BIPOC communities, the support group will enjoy speakers and presentations relevant to members of BIPOC communities living with cancer. The support group facilitator also identifies as a BIPOC.

Please note that while we are holding our support groups online on Zoom that our Support Group Agreements require participation by both video and audio unless you have been granted an exception by Cancer Lifeline in advance of the meeting. Please address questions or concerns to Pamela Krueger at pkrueger@cancerlifeline.org or (206) 832-1271.

If you are joining a meeting for the first time and are uncertain about how to use the videoconference platform we use for all of our groups, Zoom, please consider reaching out to our Lifeline during regular business hours before the day of the group so that someone with Cancer Lifeline can assist you in getting everything setup and answer questions you have. You can also call us at (206) 297-2100 during normal business hours, M-F 9am-5pm.

Our programming season occurs in four-month trimesters. Thus, the presentations identified on this page are those that will be held at the beginning of the support group meeting for the current program season. Anyone is invited to attend the presentation, regardless of whether you are a member of the support group. When you register, you will have the option of indicating whether you want to join the support group as well.
