- The Leavenworth Cancer Support Group has been meeting since 1989. This group informs and encourages persons dealing with all types of cancers, as well as their friends, families and those who have completed treatments. Patients, families and medical professionals share their knowledge and experience in dealing with this disease, with the goal of reducing the feelings of being overwhelmed, alone, or not knowing what to ask or do when dealing with cancer. The Leavenworth Cancer Support Group meets the second Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. in the Mother Xavier Ross Room at Saint John Hospital, 3500 S. 4th Street, Leavenworth, Kan. The next meeting is scheduled for Thursday, Nov. 8, 7 p.m. Group sessions include educational presentations related to community resources, projects and events. Monthly educational topics include: • Sharing experiences and feelings • Exploring complementary therapies • Dealing with depression, anxiety and fear • Pain management • Spirituality • Weight management and exercise • Learning about new medicines and treatments • Genetics and gene therapy • Lymphedema • Palliative care • Humor and laughter therapy For more information, call Shelly Hafner, Providence Cancer Center, 913-596-3354, or e-mail her at firstname.lastname@example.org; or Kay Ducey at duceyK@StMary.edu; or contact the American Cancer Society at 913-432-3277.
