Hi everyone, 

Registration is open for the Ovarian Cancer Support Group offered by Wellspring Cancer Support in partnership with Ovarian Cancer Canada. This six-week program meets once a week under a healthcare professional’s leadership to focus on relevant issues such as coping with change, relationships, managing fear or recurrence and communicating with your healthcare team. This closed group is a safe place to share your emotional, social and practical concerns and hear from others facing similar challenges.

This group will begin on February 29th and run for 6-weeks (until April 4th) at 1-2:30pm EST.

    That sounds great @Sandi6 I am positive it will be a great program.  :)
  • I’ve registered as well. ❤️
  • Today was the first session of this six-part series.  It was a rewarding experience to hear the stories of other women who have also been diagnosed with ovarian cancer.  Despite the differences in each case, there was also a common thread that bound everyone together.  It was a safe space to be able to discuss with others the physical and emotional challenges of dealing with this disease.  A commitment of 1.5 hours once a week for 6 weeks is worth it!  Attending this group helped me feel validated by others who can truly appreciate what it means to have cancer.
