"Cancer Companions" Group Provides Support Through Faith

Danville, VA - A Danville church group is coming to together to provide support for people dealing with cancer.

Mount Hermon Baptist Church's Cancer Companions group will meet for nine weeks starting September 12th.
Meetings are every Thursday night at 6:30.
Cancer patients, survivors and caregivers are invited to show and receive support. The group will talk about stress, relationships, faith, and healthy living.
Organizers say they hope the group will provide a way for folks in the area to see they aren't alone.
"It's going to hopefully help them be able to cope more with cancer and cope with a person who has cancer, " said Facilitator Karen Haley.
