Providing topic driven meetings about subjects important to men who have lost their significant other to cancer.
The Men’s Group provides a safe place for widowed men who are looking for support, healing or a chance to talk with other men who have experienced the loss of a significant other to cancer. Monthly meetings are professionally facilitated around a relevant topic. Participants may choose to share or just listen in an environment of mutual respect and confidentiality.
Professional Facilitator: Mark Scannell
Monthly meetings take place on the third Tuesday of every month from 7-8:30 p.m., at the ABOH office in Wayzata. Please RSVP for location details.
