The Cheerful Heart Cancer Support Group for anyone affected by cancer will meet from noon to 1 p.m., on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of each month, in the Chapel at St. Joseph Medical Center. Rev. John Payne will lead the group.
The group welcomes those recently diagnosed, those undergoing treatment, cancer survivors, and/or family members. The group aims is to provide a safe place for members to share, learn, support, and encourage members after a cancer diagnosis; and, to conquer the fear in themselves and others. Confidentiality is practiced, anything spoken in group stays with the group.
Gatherings are informal allowing folks to drop-in when schedules and life permits. Brown-bag lunches are welcome.
The Support Group originated in 2009 and met regularly for 11 years before a pandemic hiatus. Questions about the group can be directed to Valerie 406-261-3304.
Cheerful Heart, an organization of volunteers that has provided non-medical services to cancer patients in Lake County since 2002, sponsors the support group. Cheerful Heart does not charge for the services that it provides. For general questions about Cheerful Heart call 883-3070 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
