Join One of Our Men's Group

The Men's Group was formed several years ago as a way of sharing common cancer experiences, issues specific to men, offering support, as well as information pertinent to treatment. In addition, the group serves a social purpose and quite often the men schedule outside outings. Stop by the Men's Breakfast on Saturday, November 12th at 10:00 am or the Men's Dinner on Monday, November 28th at 5:30 pm

The Gay Men's Networking Group is a safe space for those who would like to share their experiences in coping with cancer.  The group focuses on issues pertinent to the gay community with respect to the cancer journey and is comprised of those who may be a survivor-either newly diagnosed, or out of treatment and all in-between, or those who are supporters-either partners, spouses or friends and caregivers.  Since many in the gay community have had the unfortunate experience in coping with past and ongoing health crises, this group is an especially powerful means to assist those in their cancer journey moving forward.

The next meeting is on Monday, November 14th at 5:30 pm. You do not need to be a member to attend.

You do not need to be a member to attend either of the Men's Groups.
