Your family, caregivers, friends, no matter what type or stage cancer you were diagnosed with, are welcome. Attendance/Membership is FREE, no charge to anyone. Tax deductible donations are accepted.

The goal of this group is to guide cancer patients through the cancer journey from a position of empowerment, strength, humor and hope and to counteract fear, isolation and helplessness. We share experiences living with cancer and its impact upon family and friends.

MODERATOR:  We are honored to be mentored by retired physician Dr. Jonathon Hake. Since receiving his medical degree in 1972, he wasresidency-trained and board-certified in family medicine and in preventive/occupational medicine. He taught and practiced 17 years on the faculties of Duke University, University of Arizona and University of Oklahoma. In 1988, he developed a degenerative spine condition. Four surgeries failed to relieve his chronic pain and led to a long period of disability, which he describes as his "residency training" in being a patient. Since 1996, he has facilitated cancer support groups, sharing his experiences with his own chronic condition in order to help patients find hope and healing in their journey with cancer. He retired in 2019 but continues to facilitate this group.
