Cancer survivors, caregivers and providers are coming together to form a Cancer Support Group for people throughout our communities. The Cancer Support Group – which will be run by its participants – will hold its first meeting:

Wednesday, June 17, 4 - 5 pm
Adult Center of Prescott
1280 Rosser Street

 “Yavapai Regional Medical Center is very pleased to help found this Cancer Support Group,” said Robbie Nicol, Executive Director, YRMC Community Outreach and Philanthropy. “We know it addresses an important need for many people in our community.”

The group will include people facing all types of cancer who are newly diagnosed or currently undergoing treatment as well as people who are in remission. Caregivers and providers also are invited to participate.

The Cancer Support Group will be facilitated by Rick Barnabo, Co-Owner, Health Strategies for Life, LLC. Barnabo – who also is helping launch the Cancer Support Group – is a Certified Cancer Exercise Trainer.

“Cancer Support Group participants will have access to the many excellent health information resources available in our community,” said Barnabo.
