Cancer Support Group

A Cancer Support Group for anyone affected by cancer meets twice monthly at St. Joseph Medical Center from noon to 1 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month.

Gatherings are informal allowing folks to drop-in when schedules and life permits.

Brownbag lunches are welcome. The group will meet in the Leahy Conference Room on the third floor of the medical center. For more information call 406-261-3304.

The group welcomes those recently diagnosed, those undergoing treatment, cancer survivors, and/or family members. The group aims is to provide a safe place for members to share, learn, support, and encourage members after a cancer diagnosis; and, to conquer the fear in themselves and others. Confidentiality is practiced, anything spoken in group stays with the group.

Cheerful Heart, an organization of volunteers that has provided non-medical services to cancer patients in Lake County since 2002, sponsors the support group. Cheerful Heart does not charge for the services that it provides. Contact Cheerful Heart at 406-883-3070.
