SOMC Offers Breast Cancer Support Group

Southern Ohio Medical Center’s Cancer Center now offers a breast cancer support group called the “Pink Ribbon Survivors.” The support group will meet to discuss the challenges, options and stresses that accompany breast cancer.

The new group will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m., Wednesday, Sept. 15 in the SOMC Cancer Center conference room, located at 1121 Kinneys Lane, Portsmouth.

“We offer two breast cancer support groups at the SOMC Cancer Center,” Wendi Waugh, administrative director of SOMC Cancer Services, said. “We currently have a group that meets at 1 p.m. on the third Wednesday of every month but we wanted to start a new group that gathers together in the evenings, in an effort to better meet the needs of our patients.”
