Breast Cancer Support Group

Cancer with Compassion now offers a special support group just for women with Breast Cancer. The group meets via Zoom so anyone, anywhere may participate.  We meet on the 4th Thursday of the month at 4 pm Pacific (West Coast) Time. For more information, or to receive the Zoom link for the next meeting, email us at or use the Contact Form above.

"Not Alone" Caregiver Group

Cancer with Compassion wants to recognize the sometimes invisible members of the cancer team:  Caregivers.  Caregivers can feel worn out, overwhelmed and isolated. Like the cancer patient they care for, they need support and the best support comes from other caregivers. So Cancer with Compassion announces "Not Alone," a  support group for Cancer Caregivers. We meet on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 5 pm PDT via Zoom - so anyone, anywhere can join. Are you a caregiver? Know someone who is?  Email us at for the Zoom link and password or use the Contact Form above.

You can't wait until life isn't hard anymore
before you decide to be happy ...
You are so much more than 
the bad things that happen to you.
