cancer support community

Oh my gosh, I just went to Orientation at the most amazing organization, Cancer Support Community. 

I've been plagued with terrible anxiety and panic and migraines since my husbands diagnosis and even though I haven't been to one of the support groups or other phenomenal resources available yet, I left feeling lighter already. Certainly this is one of the places where angels dwell. Everything is free ... support groups, individual counseling, yoga, pilates, zumba classes, art classes, on and on. All free for the cancer patient and family and care givers.

I felt as if my best friend had given me the biggest bestest warmest of hugs, squeezes and smiles.


  1. Sending positive thoughts for you and your dear husband, I very much appreciated any help/ support/ food/ cleaning/ driving, any help that was offered during my months of treatments. Some days you just need a meal already prepared, a bouquet from a dear friend, a card, some frozen blueberries, an email just to get through that moment in time when you need a boost.

  2. My husband was at MD Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas.. They treat the entire family. It is a wonderful place and I am grateful for their love and support.
    Hugs, Dottie

  3. My husband and I are going to a support group for a different situation, and even after talking to them on the phone, I feel so much better. Support groups are wonderful! so happy for you!

  4. I'm glad that you found a group to help you!! my Dad had brain cancer and the family is affected as much as the person with cancer. Sadly, you're not alone and let others guide you and help you to help your husband!! God Bless you both and your whole family!!
