A vibrant group of women is launching a women's cancer support group Tuesday, Aug. 8, at 11:30 p.m. in the Crag Crest classroom at the Grand Mesa Oncology & Infusion Center. Bring a lunch to enjoy.
These young women come from different walks of life with one thing in common -- cancer. Each woman received treatment at Grand Mesa Oncology, each with a unique set of circumstances and life situations. They found themselves having to fight for their lives, throwing them onto the biggest roller coaster ride of their life. They endured the physical component of fighting cancer, but were left with emotional trauma. They all found themselves anxious after treatment ended and felt like their security blanket had been lifted. Each woman found her own way over time, but strongly felt the need to fill the gap between cancer treatments and survivorship.
It is with great excitement that this women's cancer support group begins. This group welcomes all women who have had or currently have any type of cancer.
Another longstanding support group led by Dorothy Hunt welcomes all cancer patients including both men and women. She has been leading this support group for years. The support group meets the last Friday of every month at 11:30 in the Mesa Lake classroom. Bring a sack lunch.
For North Fork patients, the North Fork Cancer Support Group meets the first Saturday of every month at 11 a.m. in the Paonia Library. This group also welcomes both men and women.
If you have any questions please contact Danielle Gallegos, oncology nurse navigator, at 970-874-6429.
At their March 5 meeting Commissioners Doug Atchley, Mark Roeber and Don Suppes made two appointments to the county planning commission. Steve Shea was reappointed for a three-year term.
