Peitz Cancer Support House Breast Cancer Support Group meetings. She will speak to the Breast Cancer
Support Group on Tuesday, September 13 at noon and again at the Breast
Cancer Evening Support Group meeting on Thursday, September 22 at 6 p.m.

PCSH Breast Cancer Support Groups offer women with breast cancer a chance
to share their experience with others who may be going through similar
experiences. The sessions are for all women with breast cancer, whether
they are newly diagnosed or a long-term survivor. The groups cover various
topics of interest including different types of breast cancer, treatments,
reconstruction and living beyond cancer.
All sessions are held at the Peitz Cancer Support House, located on the
BRMC campus across Hospital Drive from the Cline Emergency Center entrance.
The Breast Cancer Support Group meets the second Tuesday of each month
at noon, and the Breast Cancer Evening Support Group meets the second
and fourth Thursday of each month at 6 p.m.
