By Cheerful Heart
POLSON — A support group for anyone affected by cancer meets regularly from noon to 1 pm at the First United Methodist Church. The group gathers on the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the church located at 301 16th Ave. East.
The group welcomes those recently diagnosed, those undergoing treatment, cancer survivors, and/or family members. The group aims is to provide a safe place
for members to share, learn, support, and encourage members after a cancer diagnosis; and, to conquer the fear in themselves and others. Confidentiality is practiced, anything spoken in group stays with the group.
Gatherings are informal allowing folks to drop-in when schedules and life permits. Folks can bring a brown bag lunch.
Cheerful Heart, an organization of volunteers who provide non-medical services for cancer patients in Lake County since 2002, sponsors the support group.
