Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer Support Group
Are you BRCA1 or BRCA2-positive and in need of support? Specifically for women at high risk for breast and ovarian cancer, this support group will provide emotional support as well as practical resources. These every-other-month group meetings create a safe atmosphere to learn and bond with others who understand what you're going through. This group assists women in adjusting to new genetic information and allows women to learn from each other about how to move forward in positive and life-affirming ways. The support group also has a confidential email tree to provide support and information in between meetings.
