Cancer monthly support group to gather Tuesday

Escanaba — OSF HealthCare St. Francis Hospital and Medical Group Oncology will host its monthly cancer support group Tuesday. Members will meet outdoors from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Eastern time in the Serenity Garden, located near the front entrance of the hospital. For safety measures, members will need to wear a mask and practice physical distancing.

The support group is available to all cancer patients and survivors, regardless of where they have received or are receiving treatment. Support persons or caregivers are welcome to attend as well. The group will be facilitated by two Mission Partners from OSF St. Francis, Jill Deno, oncology nurse navigator, and Ashley Peterson, manager of oncology and ambulatory care. The two facilitators will bring a unique level of understanding and knowledge to the group, as both are also cancer survivors.
