Providing topic driven meetings about subjects important to women who have lost their significant other to cancer.
The Women’s Group provides a safe place for widowed women who are looking for support, healing or a chance to talk with other women who have experienced the loss of a spouse 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 facilitators: Beth Freund, Kelly Grosklags
Monthly meetings take place on the second Thursday of each month from 7-8:30 p.m., at the ABOH office in Wayzata. Please RSVP for location details.
