Cancer support group will meet

GREENVILLE - The next meeting of the “Living with Cancer” Support Group will be held on January 9 from 7:00 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. The meeting will take place in the first floor administrative board room at Wayne Health Care. (From the main entrance, turn right and go down the hallway past the lab and turn left at the end of the hall. The board room will be on the left.) The group decided to meet one week later than usual due to New Year’s Day.

January’s meeting will hold an open forum and those planning to attend are being asked to bring one thing to share with the rest of the group. (Either copies for the group, or an idea that you want to share.

Perhaps there is information that will be helpful, talk about a concern to the group, or something that has been experienced and how it was dealt with, etc.)

The local Cancer Association of Darke County sponsors the Living with Cancer group in cooperation with Wayne Hospital. The Support Group is open to anyone with a cancer diagnosis, also family and friends of an individual with cancer are encouraged to attend. Facilitating the support group meeting will be Christine Lynn from the Cancer Association and Jill Brown from Wayne Health Care.
