Pueblo, CO: Coffee and Conversation @ Rocky Mountain Cancer Center
Jan 23 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

Supportive opportunity for connection and conversation

“Your illness does not define you. Your strength and courage DOES.”

Often times being diagnosed with cancer can leave an individual feeling quite isolated and alone.  It’s difficult to find others who can identify with the feelings and emotions you are experiencing

Come join us for an hour of Coffee & Conversation

Sometimes being around others that are diagnosed with cancer and hearing their stories can be reaffirming that you are not alone in this journey.

Join us in a relaxed, casual atmosphere where conversation will flow easily in a safe,
non-judgmental environment

A compassionate support program for patients and families living with cancer

Receiving a diagnosis of cancer is one of our deepest fears. When this happens, the consequences often impact greatly on an individual and on families. Responsibilities shift, values and beliefs are questioned and endless decisions call for immediate action without a clear understanding of our options or our goals. Regardless of the prognosis, this event permanently changes our lives and leaves us vulnerable to depression and other problems that undermine our hope and complicate our medical care.

Thanks to the generous support of the Monadnock United Way, MAPS offers free support groups to individuals with cancer and to family members caring for someone with cancer. These groups meet weekly for support, education, spiritual reflection and healing. In addition, MAPS offers individual or family counseling for those who are need additional care

The Saint Francis / Mount Sinai Regional Cancer Center has several programs designed to assist cancer patients and their families.

The many support groups at Saint Francis Hospital and Medical Center offer a safe place to talk, as well as to listen and learn from one another.
