Man Up To Cancer Virtual Roundtable

1st and 3rd Tuesday of each month

Changing what it means to ‘Man Up.’ Making it OK for guys to connect and accept help during the journey.

Do you want to meet other men facing cancer to share stories and support? Do you feel more comfortable talking to other men rather than a co-ed group?

In partnership with Man Up to Cancer, the Dempsey Center is hosting a men’s round table group that will meet twice a month virtually and get together for outings such as outdoor expeditions, sporting events, and special events with a positive focus on brotherhood and avoiding isolation. Man Up to Cancer is a community built to inspire men to connect and avoid isolation throughout their cancer journey.

Women’s Cancer Support Group

Wednesdays, 1:30-3PM

Women facing cancer – you are not alone! This group offers a compassionate space to share your thoughts, feelings and worries with other women
