Going beyond the diagnosis:
Breast cancer patients and their loved ones can participate in a number of support groups at John C. Lincoln's Breast Health and Research Center. Also available at the center is a library with free reference materials, brochures and books on loan.
John C. Lincoln's Breast Health and Research Center offers a wide variety of support groups for breast cancer patients and their loved ones.
The groups, which meet regularly, are free and open to all who are affected by breast cancer. Collectively, they provide a wealth of education and encouragement for breast cancer patients and those who love them.
"Our free support events — held every week — have been developed to meet the needs of our diverse breast cancer survivors," said Sherry Gage, director of John C. Lincoln's Breast Health and Research Center. "We take pride in the resources and support provided to our clients."
Focusing on the physical and emotional needs of breast cancer patients and their loved ones, these groups are designed to help breast cancer patients navigate the journey back to health.
Some support groups are dedicated to facets of personal wellness, such as nutrition, beauty and yoga. Others address the needs of specific segments of the patient population.
For example, one group is dedicated to younger breast cancer patients. Another group provides a forum for men who are caregivers for the women they love.
Most of these support groups meet at the Breast Health and Research Center, which is located at Suite 205, 19646 N. 27th Avenue, in Phoenix, immediately southwest of the I-17 / Freeway 101 interchange, on the west side of 27th Avenue.
