Gilda’s Club is starting a new cancer support group for oncology healthcare professionals on Tuesday, June 27, 2017, from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. at Gilda’s Club, 1234 East River Drive, Davenport. The support group will meet on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
This monthly support group is targeted toward healthcare professionals (nurses, social workers, chaplains, physicians, etc.) with any type of cancer diagnosis or who are personally supporting someone with cancer (a parent, sibling, co-worker). Members share thoughts, feelings, and experiences
Possible discussion topics include the duality of treating cancer patients while having your own diagnosis or supporting a loved one with cancer, allowing yourself be the patient or personal caregiver, and issues of self-disclosure and countertransference. Anyone impacted by cancer is eligible for free membership at Gilda’s Club. To join, call (563) 326-7504 or email [email protected] to schedule a New Member Meeting.
