Sacred Heart to Host Breast Cancer Support Group Oct. 15
October 7, 2013 by SoWal Staff
Breast cancer patients and survivors are invited to join the next monthly breast cancer support group meeting at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast on Tuesday, Oct. 15, at 6 p.m. in the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center.
The mission of the support group is to empower breast cancer patients and survivors through education, spirituality, support and humor. Benefits of joining a cancer support group include an increased self-esteem, enhanced sense of community, and the joy of giving and receiving encouragement and hope. The group meets on the third Tuesday of every month at 6 p.m.
The breast cancer support group is sponsored by the Olson Women’s Diagnostic Center at Sacred Heart Hospital on the Emerald Coast. The diagnostic center conveniently centralizes all screening and diagnostic appointments for mammograms, stereotactic breast biopsies, ultrasounds and bone density scans. A dedicated patient care navigator provides patient advocacy, coordination of services, education and support to all women and their families.
