“Hearing the ‘C word’ as your diagnosis is one of the most devastating things in life. Having people to share your feelings with about cancer is such a great thing because only you and they understand exactly how you feel.

Cancer doesn’t care about you and what you feel, but others who know what it’s like do. It’s a club no one wants to be a member of, but the experience of a support group is an amazing and healing feeling. Thank you Cherokee Regional for making it available to us!”

Our Cancer Support group meets on the 2nd Tuesday of each month at 6:00 pm in the Cherokee Regional Medical Center Board Room. Join community members who have battled or are battling cancer in group discussions may include story sharing, advocating for yourself, questions for your doctors, dealing with side effects of chemotherapy, advance care planning, guest speakers, local resources, understanding your lab results, and more. Contact Kayla with Cherokee County Public Health at 712.225.2129 for more information.
