Discussions About Cancer

Discussions About Cancer is a safe space for members of the LGBT and allied communities to come together and support one another on topics related to cancer. All impacted by cancer are welcome, including those currently undergoing treatment, survivors, family members and those who have been caregivers to a cancer patient. 

This group meets select dates. Please check our calendar for announcements on the next meeting.

Next Meeting: Monday, October 15th from 7:00pm-8:30pm

The LGBT community is disproportionately affected by cancer. Below are links to articles from the National LGBT Cancer Network.

From their website www.cancer-network.org

"These articles, written by staff and volunteers of the National LGBT Cancer Network cover a wide base of topics. Drawing on current research data, the articles are written in plain language, intended to be understandable to a broad audience who may not have a background in science, but with citations that will earn the respect of healthcare professionals."
