QUINCY – The Quincy Medical Group Foundation and Quincy Medical Group Cancer Institute are announcing the creation of a support group for people touched by cancer. 

Cancer Connect provides an opportunity for anyone receiving cancer treatment, cancer survivors, and/or caregivers to come together in support of one another. Cancer Connect will be facilitated by Shari Robesky, the oncology social worker at the QMG Cancer Institute. The group will meet from 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. every third Thursday of the month, starting Jan. 20, at the QMG Cancer Institute, 3301 Broadway.

Robesky said Cancer Connect provides a place for people to find hope, develop relationships and know they are not alone.

“It is our goal that those attending Cancer Connect will receive social, emotional, and practical support from others, as well as learn coping strategies, insight and inspiration,” she said in a press release. “Most important, we hope to have fun, despite the struggles they face every day.” 

Attending Cancer Connect is free. Drinks, snacks, and giveaways will be provided. Registration is not required. 

For more information or questions, contact Robesky at srobesky@quincymedgroup.com or (217) 277-4070.
