Cancer Support

The Cancer Support Group meets on the third Thursday of every month in the Holmes Student Center room 703. A cancer diagnosis triggers many fears and at the same time you immediately are making multiple decisions about your treatment. A support group is a place to talk with others about the types of treatment they considered and chose as well as the experiences that they had at different treatment centers. As you go through treatment, sharing your responses with others and hearing others experiences helps with coping during a challenging time. Cancer is a part of your life experience and everyone continues to have responses to follow-up treatment and other experiences that may trigger the initial fears and concerns you had when you were first diagnosed. In addition to group meeting discussions, presentations will be offered as determined by the group.
