Having recently completed radiation treatment for breast cancer, a local resident is reaching out to the community to ask for help from survivors or current patients who are interested in helping to start a local support group.
There are currently groups in Durango and Cortez, which meet monthly.
Some benefits of the group might include a phone list, regular meetings, rides to treatment, help with getting information and doing research, as well as emotional support.
Interested women are asked to call Carol at 831-9459 or to e-mail her at PSBreastCancer@yahoo.com.
It is hoped that the group will be organized and meeting regularly after the first of the year, but there can be individual support right away.
