A lttle late - but........


Recommended Posts

Here is a flyer I received yesterday from Judy Willbergh, Supportive Care Manager at Meridian Health. This has been in the works for about 2 months. It seems at though some of the PsychoSocial support professionals have good intentions, but do not realize that cancer patients do not just sit around waiting with baited breath for our schedule to be filled up at the last minute. what else would we have to do with our time. This is from a woman that said we could revisit the conversation on a face to face lung cancer support group when we see what kind of turn out we get from this event. No wonder they are disappointed with results.

Anyway here is the info:
