Metastatic Breast Cancer Support Group for Women

Peer Support

Support groups provide a safe environment where cancer patients can talk about living with cancer with others that may be having similar experiences. Support groups give people a chance to ease fears and share strengths. Scripps offers a number of support groups to help you to:

  • Maintain a positive attitude and take an active role in the recovery process
  • Cope with chemotherapy, radiation therapy and the side effects of treatment
  • Talk about cancer to family members, friends and co-workers
  • Deal effectively with doctors and hospitals
  • Regain a sense of control
  • Maximize your potential for healing

This group is open to women in the entire San Diego community (non-Scripps patients are welcome) as part of our educational, community outreach program.

Topics address the particular concerns of women dealing with advanced breast cancer, including:

  • Treatment decisions
  • Side effects of treatment
  • Work-related issues
  • Changing relationships with children, spouses/partners, family and friends
  • End-of-life concerns

Facilitators: Bev Mangerich, RN, MSN; Paula Thomas MSW, ACSW
