New Horizon Support Group

A Whole New Way To Look at Surviving Breast Cancer

Who Should Attend?
All breast cancer survivors ranging from the recently diagnosed to the person who is a 30-year survivor may attend. Once you have been diagnosed with breast cancer, you are immediately a part of a group of people who are extremely loyal and who intimately understand what you are going through.

When Do We Meet?*
The group meets every third Monday at Jocko's in their meeting room from 6:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.

*Time and date may change based on preference of the group.

Is There a Cost?
The group is free, but if you would like to order food at Jocko's, you pay for your own.

Where Can I Get More Information?
By calling the Presence Cancer Care Center at 217.431.4290.
