Support Groups

 "Let’s Talk It Ovar" Ovarian/GYN Support Group

Please join us for lunch and informal discussions about the issues related to being diagnosed with Ovarian and/or a GYN Cancer. This group is open to all women either newly diagnosed, currently in treatment or in remission. You are welcome to join our group if you need support or encouragement or just someone to talk to. We are here to support you.  There are no fees to attend these meetings 

When diagnosed with ovarian or another gynological cancer most patients have little or no information about the disease. We have a wonderful, caring, warm group of ladies who openly share experiences and feelings. We share information about treatments, tests and side effects, including details that you may never learn from your Oncologist or the Internet. Longtime survivors will inspire you and give hope to the newly diagnosed. Many times survivors say that family and good friends are important, but there is nothing, truly nothing like that first moment when you look into the eyes of another survivor and realize that they really do understand what you are going through. At that point, we hope a little bit of the loneliness will melt away.

So, please join us. If you feel a little uncomfortable coming alone, please contact us and someone will pick you up. You will feel a part of the group the minute you meet us. Come share your experiences, or just listen to others. Come cry with us. Come laugh with us. We are all in this together and we really do understand.
