Are you facing cancer in your own life? Or, do you know a friend and loved one who is looking for support? Three new support groups are starting up in our community.
Did you know that on average, adults who smoke cigarettes die 14 years earlier than nonsmokers? And, that more deaths are caused each year by tobacco use than by all deaths from HIV, illegal drug use, alcohol use, motor vehicle injuries, suicides, and murders combined?

PinnacleHealth is hosting a new support group designed especially for young women facing breast or ovarian cancer: Young Cancer Survivor Group for Women.
