We Care Cancer Support Group

The WE CARE Cancer Support Group  began in 2010 with the purpose of  offering support and prayers to cancer sufferers and survivors, as well as to their family and friends.  This group helps put our trust in God.  Having a strong faith and belief in God can help us cope and maintain a positive attitude when dealing with this dreaded disease.  

WE CARE provides the opportunity to meet with others who have had cancer   affect their lives. The group offers not only support, but practical information as well.  Our meetings are upbeat and informative.  Over the past two years our meetings have included:

  • Learning about cancer-healing saints
  • Suggestions for dealing with cancer
  • Cancer survivors and supporters sharing their experiences
  • Doctors sharing their expertise
  • Nutritional guidelines to help prevent the occurrence/recurrence .

A new initiative is to learn about cancer causing environmental factors.  The group meets on the fourth Thursday of the month immediately following the Paraklesis    service.  We hope to see you at one or more of our meetings this year.  Remember, you don’t have to have cancer to be part of this group.  Come for the   information and camaraderie!

For  additional information, please contact Joanne  Vagelatos.
