Lake Regional Provides New Cancer Support Groups

Friday, August 26, 2022

Lake Regional Cancer Center now offers support groups for people who have been diagnosed with any kind of cancer.

“We want you to know that you’re not alone on your cancer journey,” said TJ Sweet, director of Lake Regional Cancer Center. “Your community and our cancer center are always here to help you, support you and encourage you.”

The Women’s Cancer Support Group meets at 1 p.m. the first Tuesday of each month, and the Men’s Cancer Support Group meets at 1 p.m. the second Tuesday of each month. Both groups meet in the Lake Regional Cancer Center Conference Room. Registration is requested.

Participants will learn about symptoms to expect during treatment, tips and tricks for managing those symptoms, and how to maintain a positive mindset during treatment.

“We also will answer all of the questions you have about your journey,” Sweet said.

Anyone who is receiving treatment or recovering from cancer is welcome to attend, along with a spouse and guests. You do not have to be a Lake Regional patient to participate. For more information, call the Lake Regional Cancer Center at 573.302.2772.
