Advanced Cancer

Living with advanced cancer is scary. One must cope with a serious reality but also move forward with life on a day-to-day basis. We’ve compiled some helpful resources below. We also offer a twice-a-month support group for people living with cancer as a chronic disease. We call it Pat’s Group in honor of Pat Thonney who created the group. Please call us at 277-0960 or email We’d love to talk with you.
