with Cheryl Hughes, LICSW, OSW-C, and Sara Field, LICSW
This monthly gathering is an opportunity to meet other young adult cancer survivors in their 20s, 30s and early 40s. Join us to enjoy a light dinner together with caregivers and participate in a facilitated group support session. This program is a collaborative initiative of local hospitals, health organizations and cancer support groups.*
This group meets once each month on Sundays from 5:00-6:30pm. A light vegan meal is served.
Our monthly Young Adult Caregiver Support Group meets simultaneously. Please indicate when registering if a caregiver will be joining you.
