Women’s Cancer Support Groups

Once you hear the words, “you have cancer,” everything in your life shifts and changes. Women with any type of cancer diagnosis are welcome at these monthly groups, whether you are newly diagnosed, working your way through treatment or just finishing treatment. Join other women in a safe, confidential and non-judgmental environment to talk and get support on all the different ways cancer impacts your life. Through educational speakers and open discussion learn ways to help manage your cancer and not be managed by your cancer.
