The loss of a parent from cancer brings with it many complex feelings. Sadness, anger, and regret are just a few of the feelings you may experience. Sometimes friends – and even family members – don’t understand these feelings.
This support group provides a monthly opportunity to join a group of people who may understand. This group is facilitated by a professional oncology social worker and will be offered monthly on Mondays from 6:00-7:30pm.
