The statistics of a person having a bout with cancer sometime in their lifetime are staggering: For men, it is 1 out of 2; women, 1 out of 3. Because of the emotional upheaval that a diagnosis can cause, most people tend to keep it quiet and sort through things by themselves or with their closest family members. A person with cancer can feel very alone, confused, and frightened.
The Cancer Support Community, which is just being initiated, will support and strengthen people with cancer as well as their families— both physically and emotionally— and discuss healing practices that should be followed regardless of whether using Conventional Treatment, Integrative Treatment (a combination), and/or Alternative Therapies.
This community support group will offer camaraderie, knowledge and education from local health care providers and support and sharing of resources from others who are facing cancer. FUN events to get the word out and FUN fund-raising will also be on this Community’s agenda. Very importantly, friendships that blossom with care and understanding can make a huge impact on someone’s life and their road back to health.
