SupportGroupFinding Your Way Through Cancer Treatment: Support for Patients, Caregivers and Family Members
 

Cancer support groups can be a very useful resource. Research has shown that people attending support groups cope better both emotionally and physically. A connection with others-- talking about issues and feelings and realizing you are not alone in this cancer journey --can lead to understanding and clarity of information, diminished fear, and increased hope.
 
When: Thursdays, 
6:30-8 p.m.
 
Where: Conference Room, Maplewood Cancer Center, 1580 Beam Avenue, Maplewood, MN 

Questions: Contact Nancy Salscheider RN,OCN at 651-457-1913
