St. Anthony Cancer Support Group

The St. Anthony Cancer Support Group provides support to people with cancer, their families, friends, and loved ones.

Cancer Support Group

In addition to excellent medical care, there is a deep need for emotional, spiritual, and educational support when faced with the challenge of a cancer diagnosis

The goals of St. Anthony Cancer Support Group are to:

  • Create a setting in which people can offer one another emotional, social, and spiritual support.
  • Provide opportunities to educate about cancer treatments and topics from speakers or presenters.
  • Make it possible to interact in informal settings.

Someone with cancer can meet with other survivors and find support, encouragement, hope, and know they are not alone. It means so much to talk to someone who has “been there."
