Providing topic driven meetings about subjects important to women who have lost their spouse to cancer.

aboh-womenThe 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. At each monthly meeting, a professional facilitator will discuss a relevant topic. Guest speakers will be used on occasion. Participants may choose to share or just listen in an environment of mutual respect and confidentiality.
