Cancer Support Group @ Homegrown Healthcare Alternative Wellness
Jul 13 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

WHAT TO EXPECT: Our Cancer Support Group is a peer-led meeting for anyone touched by any cancer including those recently diagnosed, in treatment or in remission, and those who share in the journey of a loved one diagnosed with cancer. Group discussions may include: • What can be expected during treatment whether treatment is traditional or alternative, • What has helped to manage physical side effects of treatment and the emotions that go along with a cancer diagnosis, and • How to communicate with health care providers and family members. Our group meets in a safe, non-judgement zone. ‘What is said in group – stays in group’. Sharing information and advice may provide a sense of more control and reduce levels of depression, isolation and anxiety, and help us be better prepared in our journeys. Support groups can: • Help you feel better, more hopeful, and not so alone. • Give you a chance to talk about your feelings and work through them. • Offer personal accounts and individual experiences about what has been helpful. • Help you deal with practical problems, such as problems at work or school. • Help you cope with treatment decisions and side effects.
