Cancer Support Group schedules meetings

Friday, March 2, 2012

According to the American Cancer Society, it is estimated that there will be over 1.6 million new cases of cancer diagnosed in 2012.

Everyone has been affected by cancer in one way or another. You may be a current cancer patient, a cancer survivor, or have a family member or friend who is suffering from cancer.

The next three meetings of the Cherokee Area Cancer Support Group will take place on the following Saturdays - March 10th, April 14th, and May 5th. The meetings will be held at the Spice Rack in Cherokee, and will begin at 9 a.m. Anyone who has been touched by cancer is welcome to attend.

The format of the meetings will be educational, and will include speakers on various topics, group discussions and a time for sharing. This program is free to the public and is a great opportunity to visit with others who have been affected by cancer.

The group has been organized by Darlene Wiersema and Connie Nelson. If you have any questions, you may contact Connie at 225-2986, Darlene at 225-4039, or JoAnne Tapper at 225-3368 (Ext. 229).
