Please email us at [email protected] if you are interested in joining. It is open to cancer patients and their families, or other caregivers.
Cancer Support Group Meetings are led by Mary Short and Cobey Senescu. Mary is a cancer survivor that recently retired from her work as a Mammography Technologist. Cobey also is a cancer survivor that recently retired. They have both been actively involved in Cancer Support Groups not only as facilitators, but also from the perspective as participants. They are trained and experienced in Support Group facilitation and love being there for others by creating a safe listening place for people to share their feelings, fears, and experiences in dealing with their own cancer journeys.
The purpose of these meetings is to provide a safe place where people affected by cancer can support each other, develop friendships, share ideas, and thoughts while learning coping skills in a non-judgmental, caring atmosphere.
Our Support Group provides:
- A sense of belonging reducing isolation
- Empathy by being understood by others who have had cancer
- A safe place for expressing feelings, experiences, and fears
- Activities and discussion that allow for all to relax and feel at ease – helping to build warmth as a space for a sense of humor and positive thoughts for healing
