SHAREing & CAREing’s survivorship support group began over twenty years ago and brings together a community of survivors ranging from newly-diagnosed to post treatment.
We will take some time to discuss anxiety, particularly for those of us who may have faced delays in healthcare and other activities and are looking to resuming them safely. And, as always, we will have a chance to give and receive support and acknowledge the beauty and joy that is also part of our lives.
Support group facilitated by Program Manager Merryl Reichbach, LCSW.
For Our Sept 10th Meeting
Special guest, Linda Bulone, RN, OCN, CCRC, Research Nurse Manager, Queens Hospital Cancer Center who has been working in Queens hospitals during the pandemic, will share her experiences as an oncology nurse working with Covid-19 patients. She will answer your questions about staying safe, her experience working with research protocols for Covid-19 treatments, and how cancer patients and survivors can keep themselves safe as fall and winter approach.
About Our Virtual Support Groups
Our virtual events will meet on Zoom so we can all be together. Zoom is an online service that many of us are using now to connect with others. Some of you may be familiar with it already using it to connect with family who live at a distance. Zoom is free, easy to download and will enable us to all connect together safely. If you have a smartphone or computer, you can do this!
S&C has been using Zoom for our Wellness Support Group meetings and it’s been working really well. Even people who were unfamiliar with this before (including me) have found it very accessible. I hope you will join our Zoom meetings. Please register below for our meeting and you will receive an email with instructions on how to access the meeting. For those of you who have not attended this meeting before because of work or other constraints, now may be a perfect time to join us! Sending you wishes for health and safety during this difficult time.
