A Breath of Hope offers support groups in our Minnetonka office for survivors, as well as those who are grieving a loved one lost to lung cancer. Each group offers opportunities for learning, discussion and support and is led by professional, certified facilitators.
Changes to grief group programming in 2019:
Grief groups will meet every other even month on the first Tuesday from 6:30-8:30 in our offices. Each meeting will start with a one-hour large group session focused on a specific topic and led by a professional on that topic. The large group session will be followed by one-hour small group sessions for discussion about the topic and a chance for men, women, and adult children to talk about their own journeys and challenges. The small groups offer a more intimate place for personal discussions among those grieving for a loved one.
