(1/31/2014) Does cancer play a role in your life either as a patient, caregiver, friend or family member? McLeod Loris Seacoast is pleased to announce the addition of a free Cancer Support Group for anyone whose life has been touched by cancer.
The group, open to people of all ages, is held the first Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the Auxiliary Room at McLeod Seacoast. Each meeting, a key speaker will address various topics of interest for cancer patients and their families.
Studies have found that many people who have been diagnosed with cancer join a support group to help them manage the wide range of feelings and fears they experience during and after cancer treatment. Cancer patients can come together to share experiences and coping techniques. Support groups can enhance self-esteem, reduce depression, decrease anxiety and help to improve relationships with family members and friends.
For more information about this or other support groups and events at McLeod Loris Seacoast, please call (843) 390-8326.
