Spring 2013.....We will be offering a topic oriented Women’s Cancer Support Group beginning on June 3rd. The group will be held in Provincetown and will meet bi-weekly for 8 sessions. The sessions will include guest speakers on topics such as movement and exercise, impact of diagnosis, yoga, nutrition and other subjects relevant for those living with a cancer diagnosis. Speakers will present for part of the session with the remaining time utilized for members to share ideas and impressions regarding adapting the information into their lives.
This group is open to all women with any type of cancer and at any stage of treatment and recovery. The group will be facilitated by Cindy Rosenbaum, LICSW who has worked with HOW’s Cancer Support Group since 1999. This group is free and confidential as are all of Helping Our Women’s services. To sign up for this group, please call Irene at 508-487-4357 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
March, 2013…..We are pleased to announce that we are receiving a $12,000 grant from the Cape and Islands United Way specifically for our Financial Assistance Program. We are also pleased to report that we are in the fourth year of a grant for the same program from the Seamen’s Bank Long Point Charitable Foundation; their commitment for $25,000 over five years is a true community response to those on the outer Cape in need.
Cape Cod Healthcare’s Community Benefits Program has granted HOW $7000 for our Transportation Program. This is the second time since 2010 that we have received funding from Cape Cod Healthcare; the first was to help us kick off our very popular public access cable TV program, Bridging the Gap which is co-produced with PTV.
