The goal is to provide education, support, and a sense of community for those who are striving to adjust to either a new or recurrent cancer diagnosis. It is designed to meet the needs of not only the patient, but also the people who care for them and help them through their treatment experience. Family members and friends are welcome to attend. Facilitated by a nurse from MN Oncology.

Begin anytime. GriefShare is a Christ-centered grief recovery support group.  The Biblically-based program, focusing on grief topics associated with the death of a loved one, is presented in a 13-week video series featuring nationally respected grief experts.  In group discussion you will have an opportunity to share with people who understand how you feel and the pain of your loss and start the journey from mourning to joy.  Confidentiality is an important part of the program.  Each week is a self contained presentation so you may begin the series at any time and finish the series when the next 13 weeks are offered.
