The Susan O’Brien Fischer Cancer Center at Bothwell Regional Health Center has reintroduced the cancer support group High Hopes.

The High Hopes Cancer Support Group is designed to help patients and their caregivers cope with cancer and live more effectively.

“We are pleased to offer this support group again to the residents of our community affected by cancer,” said Oncology Services Director Jason Sharp. “We saw the need for patients to have an atmosphere that provides for open dialogue on topics such as understanding medications and the physical and emotional changes that are part of living with cancer.”

The next meeting will be at 4:30 p.m. April 19 in the Cancer Center. Nancey Dove will share the story of her journey.
