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.
