Pueblo, CO: Coffee and Conversation @ Rocky Mountain Cancer Center
Apr 25 @ 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
