Support Groups

The Breast and GYN Health Project sponsors support groups that provide emotional and social support for those newly diagnosed, those undergoing treatment, as well as those with post-treatment issues.  The Project offers support groups focusing on breast cancer and gynecologic cancers.  Each group has a specific focus area.  All BGHP programs are free of charge.  The meeting times of these groups may change.  Please call (707) 825-8345 to confirm or to add your name to our support group reminder call list.  

***MOST support groups are offered on Zoom or Facebook Groups, but some are also meeting in-person.  Please call us for more information at 707-825-8345.
