Monthly Cancer Support Group Starts February 13th

Wednesday, February 13, 2019 at 12:00pm to 1:00pm

Weill Hall, 321

The Cancer Resource Center of the Finger Lakes and Cornell Human Resources - Work/Life are beginning a monthly support group for members of the Cornell community who have or have had cancer.

Faculty, staff, students, and retirees who have been diagnosed with cancer are welcome. It’s an opportunity to meet one another, create a community of support, and learn about the resources available on campus and in Ithaca.

The first meeting is Wednesday, February 13, from Noon – 1:00 p.m. in 321 Weill Hall. No pre-registration is necessary. Future meetings will take place the second Wednesday of each month at the same time and location.

The group will be facilitated by Monica Vakiner, Director of Client Services at the Cancer Resource Center. Bob Riter, Patient Advocate for the Cornell Physical Sciences Oncology Center, is assisting with coordination of this group.

Please note this group is not for caregivers of those with cancer. The Cancer Resource Center offers a caregiver group on the second Tuesday of each month from 5:30 to 7:00 pm at its office (612 West State St.). Cornell Work/Life also offers a Caregiver Support & Education Network that meets monthly on campus.  Additional cancer support groups are available at the Cancer Resource Center and are listed here
