Florida Cancer Affiliates (FCA), a community-based radiation oncology, medical oncology, and hematology practice, announces that its Trinity center will host breast cancer support group meetings. The group meets the first and third Thursday each month at the Trinity center, 3611 Little Road, Trinity, Florida 34655.
Anyone interested in joining and learning about this group should call Florida Cancer Affiliates Trinity center at 727-372-9159. The next meeting is scheduled for August 4 from 6 – 7:30 pm.
There will be an open discussion with the group on topics of interest. Anyone who has been touched by breast cancer is invited to attend, not just Florida Cancer Affiliates’ patients. The meeting is open to all breast cancer survivors. Light refreshments will be served. Call Denise at 727-236-0302 for information.
The support groups at Florida Cancer Affiliates’ New Port Richey center are conducted by a licensed clinical social worker. The biweekly sessions cover a variety of topics such as the use of makeup, pain control, body image, and how to communicate with others about their condition. Participants will be provided with useful educational material about cancer and cancer treatment. Survivors will be given the opportunity to raise concerns about their condition and learn what others are feeling and what they experienced. Best of all they will learn about the joy of new friendships and learn that they are not alone.
