Purpose:
Through sharing of personal experience, video watching, practicing communication skills, discussion of cancer-related information, and other creative activities, Rainbow Support Group seeks to provide emotional and spiritual support to people with breast or gynecologic cancers, whether they are in treatment or recovery. Group members will receive mutual encouragement and comfort to face their own struggles and challenges.
