Support Groups:

Breast Cancer Support Group started in 2003 for women in all stages of breast cancer diagnosis and treatment as well as for the survivors. These very strong women have made this a resounding success! They meet once a month on third Tuesday of each month. The meetings are held in NLCC Lunch Room and begin at 4:15 PM and generally last 1 hour. They have had speakers, raised funds, helped and supported each other. Anyone with breast cancer diagnosis is welcome to attend these meetings. Meeting dates and details are posted in the News & Events section of our website. If you wish to be notified via email please contact the office at 860-443-4455.

Connections Program was initiated in 2001 for providing a "connection" for all patients, past and present. This program "links" a new patient with someone who has finished therapy for similar illness. Survivors have benefited by sharing their experiences with those beginning their journey and patients that are beginning their journey have benefited from "connecting" with a survivor! They find hope and gain a better understanding of their illness and treatments. If you are interested in "connecting" please contact the office at 860-443-4455.
