Mercy's Cancer Support Group offers connection

 “It really helps people.”                                


That’s what Jennifer Schatz, RN, OCN, says about Mercy’s Cancer Support Group. She wishes more people would try the group because she knows how helpful it is for people once they do attend.


For those living with any type of cancer and their caregivers, Cancer, Coffee & Conversation meets from 6:30 to 8 p.m. on the second Tuesday of every month in Patient Education Room 1701 at Mercy Hospital. There is no charge for the group.


“This group offers people a time to connect with others who are faced with the same challenges and emotions,” said Barb Orth, RN, OCN. “We hope people will come to share conversation or just to listen and enjoy a cup of coffee with friends. We look forward to sharing and supporting one another.”


In addition to conversation and support, the group also brings in special speakers. Scheduled topics include:

April 12: Qigong demonstration, Glenn Tobey, Psychotherapist, Qigong Master
