Helping our Women - "Stay Strong" Women's Cancer Support Group

2nd and 4th Wednesday in Truro

The “Stay Strong” Women’s Cancer Support Group — meets on the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of every month at the Truro Public Library, on Standish Way in Truro, from 1 – 2:15pm. 

This support groups is a meeting for women diagnosed with cancer and survivors of cancer.  Even though many people receive support from friends and family, the number one reason people join a support group is to be with others who have similar cancer experiences. Some research shows that joining a support group improves both quality of life and survival.

The objectives of the “Stay Strong” Women’s Cancer Support Group are to:

  • Help you feel better, more hopeful, and not so alone
  • Give you a chance to talk about your feelings and work through them
  • Help you cope with side effects of treatment
  • Share available resources

The “Stay Strong” Women’s Cancer Support Group is led by cancer survivor and registered nurse Ginny Dutra and is facilitated by a staff member from Helping Our Women (HOW).  HOW provides supportive services to empower women in Provincetown, Truro, Wellfleet and Eastham who have been diagnosed with chronic, life threatening or disabling illnesses.
