Do you have questions about your cancer diagnosis or treatment? Find support and learn from others with similar concerns at the CFFNM Support Groups.  Please note that our groups have changed as of October, 2017.

We are now offering four groups:

  • NEW!  How We Heal: meets the first Wednesday of every month from 3:00-5:00 pm (NOTE: the first meeting will be held on Wednesday, Nov. 1 from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm).  This group is open to all people who have a cancer diagnosis, and includes tips on how to navigate and be supported by the system.  Facilitated by Janet Smith, RN.  How We Heal Flyer
  • Together: A Group for Friends and Family of Cancer Patients: meets every Tuesday from 11 am – 12:15 pm.  This group addresses the unique needs of the caregiver and those close to the cancer patient.
  • Living with Cancer Group: meets on Wednesdays from 1:15 – 2:30.  This group is for patients dealing with the challenges of recurrent or metastatic cancer.
  • Empowering Ourselves to Heal: A Support Group for Women with Cancer meets on the first Saturday of each month from 10 am – 12:00 pm and the third Thursday of the month from 6:00 – 8:00 pm.  Join other women in finding inspiration, laughter and enthusiasm in the midst of illness.  Come to either the Saturday or Thursday meeting — or both!
