Interested Pagosans met to formally establish a Pagosa Cancer Support Group.
The group will meet on a monthly basis and, if there is interest, host speaker meetings on cancer-relevant topics and develop a support phone list.
Meetings will be on the fourth Monday of each month, starting Feb. 27, at 5:30 p.m. at the Heritage Building on Pagosa Street, in Suite N.
The meetings are open to survivors, patients, family members, caregivers or others interested in the disease, medical protocols, diet, exercise and emotional aspects.
Studies have proven the positive impact on the quality of life and improved survival rates for patients who participate in support groups.
For further information or to make recommendations for speakers, call Debra at (530) 205-5593, Carol at 731-9459 or Howard at 264-5100.
