Women under the age of 40 who are diagnosed with breast cancer have unique needs. This support group will focus on those concerns while allowing the members to share their feelings in a safe supportive environment. Support groups meet online weekly.

Monthly Group

Touchstone Book Group

Last Monday of the month; 6-7:30 p.m.

This group is for any breast cancer survivor who has received their last treatment more than 18 months ago. The group will meet monthly to discuss a book that focuses on cancer and coping. Discussing a book with characters on similar journeys can elicit empathetic conversations about our own journeys, and connect us to other survivors.
