Words from group members...
When my patient navigator suggested a support group, I was skeptical. I felt it was our challenge to face on our own. I am thrilled to say I was wrong. We hope and trust each of you is aware how much you helped two people who were struggling and scared as hell. Individually and collectively, this group walks with each of us physically and emotionally as we work through unspeakable pain, suffering, and fear and you do it with compassion and love. Please don't ever take for granted what you've done and will do. You have the power to change lives and for that we all need to be forever thankful. ~ Denis, cancer survivor
"It seemed to lift those fears off my shoulders. The Kelly Weinberg Foundation has definitely given me the strength to continue this battle that I'm in right now." ~ cancer survivor
"I started attending the Kelly Weinberg Foundation meetings as a way to support others who are on their own personal journey with cancer. Our discussions are always honest, caring, and supportive – meeting participants wherever they are in their journeys and their needs at the time. Sometimes it’s helpful just to know that others have experienced what you are going through, and hear thoughts on ways to cope with the inevitable ups and downs of the path". - WCC, cancer survivor
