Cancer Survivor Support Group Available
Holzer Center for Cancer Care sponsors a monthly Cancer Survivor Support Group at the Gallipolis Hospital on the second Thursday of the month at 12noon. The group is designed to help individuals, who either have cancer or are cancer survivors, and their loved ones understand cancer, manage treatment and recovery, and find the emotional support they need. The group features guest speakers to discuss topics of interest for those in attendance.
As shared by the National Cancer Institute, the number one reason an individual joins a support group is to be with others with similar cancer experiences. Some research shows that joining a support group improves both quality of life and survival. Support groups can:
- Help you feel better, more hopeful, and not so alone
- Give you a chance to talk about your feelings and work through them
- Help you deal with practical problems, such as problems at work or school
- Help you cope with side effects of treatment
