Support groups are a helpful way to gain useful information and to connect with others facing cancer. Our groups are informal and always welcome family and friends.
Support groups meet on the second Monday of each month at 12 noon at the Strosacker Center at 220 W. Main Street, Midland, MI in room 110. Both Men’s and Women’s Groups meet to share lunch and listen to a presentation on a cancer related topic. Facilitators then lead the groups separately for sharing concerns and tips for coping. Call (989) 835-4841 for more information.
