Hartford, CT: Prostate Cancer Support Group @ Saint Francis/Mount Sinai Regional Cancer Center
Oct 15 @ 5:00 pm – 6:30 pm

Fear of the unknown is the greatest obstacle cancer patients face after initial diagnosis and start of treatment. Some answers can be found by meeting with other patients who have successfully conquered cancer. From sharing common problems comes common solutions.

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.
