Community Health Connections

ThedaCare offers Breast Cancer Support Group:

No one knows the true experience of breast cancer like someone who’s already fought through it. Join others and share the journey. We’ll discuss our individual struggles and successes, offer up listening ears for support and cheer each other on as we face the next chapter: enjoying life after breast cancer.

The group meets every third Monday of the month from 6:00-7:30pm at the Appleton Medical Center, Martha Siekman Cancer Center. For more information, please contact ThedaCare’s cancer services at (920) 380-1500.
