Cancer Center Support Group

Because the last thing one should feel during the cancer journey is alone!

The cancer journey can be very challenging. Why travel alone? A group of patients and families on the same road are meeting to share their feelings and experiences at the Cancer Center Support Group, every Thursday, from 11:30a-12:30p in the Library for Life at Rideout Cancer Center, 618 5th Street, Marysville.

In this open forum, moderated by cancer professionals, where personal struggles, practical suggestions and everyday triumphs find their voice.

For more information, call Christine Means, MSW, ASW, 530-749-4400 ext 1692.
