Cancer Support Group Welcomes All

A cancer support group comes together from noon to 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month in the Chapel at St. Joseph Medical Center. The Cheerful Heart Cancer Support Group is for anyone affected by cancer and is led by Pastor Matthew Connally of the Ronan/Polson Nazarene Church. The Chapel is located inside the front entrance to the hospital.

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. Folks can bring a brown bag lunch.

Cheerful Heart, an organization of volunteers who provide non-medical services for cancer patients in Lake County since 2002, sponsors the support group.
