BCRC Young Survivors Meetup Group
Nov 14 @ 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm

The Breast Cancer Resource Center’s meetup groups gather throughout the year and empower those diagnosed with breast cancer. We believe no one should face breast cancer alone. Our groups are a safe and comfortable place to share, be uplifted, exchange ideas, get informed, gain daily strength, explore handling different situations, embrace one another, and move forward in your personal journey.

Our Young Survivors meetup group is an ongoing monthly peer-facilitated support group addressing the unique concerns of women under the age of 40 who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. Young women at any stage of their breast cancer journey are welcome to attend. Whether you have just been diagnosed, are still undergoing treatment or are several years out, join us to connect with other young women who have faced breast cancer.

Registration is required.

BCRC Coping with Breast Cancer & Beyond Meetup Group
Nov 21 @ 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm

The Breast Cancer Resource Center’s meetup groups gather throughout the year and empower those diagnosed with breast cancer. We believe no one should face breast cancer alone. Our groups are a safe and comfortable place to share, be uplifted, exchange ideas, get informed, gain daily strength, explore handling different situations, embrace one another, and move forward in your personal journey.

Our Coping with Breast Cancer & Beyond meetup group is an ongoing meetup for patients and survivors of stage I, II or III breast cancer. Monthly meetings will help participants cope with the immediate and long-term effects of breast cancer and its treatment. Discussions will focus on the issues of importance to those in the group, and may include managing hair loss, fatigue, chemo-brain, body image, employment issues, while also focusing on practical ways to move beyond breast cancer and return to wellness.  Newly diagnosed patients will bond with others at various stages of their journey.
