Has anyone seen Hope Haven?

The building seems to have vanished while I was putting away the Christmas decorations.

Cancer Survivors Support Group

Have you just been diagnosed with cancer or are you going through treatment at the moment? Or have you completed your treatment and want to share your experiences with others? SL Cancer Survivors Group is a peer support group that meets every Thursday at 4pm SLT and every Sunday at 12 noon SLT in Second Life.

The group has been meeting regularly for over two years. Meetings are held in the safe surroundings of Hope Haven on the American Cancer Society in Second Life island. Attendance is open to everyone who has heard those words 'I'm sorry, you have cancer'. New members are very welcome. Come and meet fellow survivors, share your story, exchange information and experiences, vent, or just chat.

For carers, caregivers, and family members there is a separate group - SL Cancer Survivors Group.

For more details about how to join and a landmark to the meeting place please contact me.

Monthly cancer talk by Dr Ren Stonecutter

'The good, the bad, and the downright ugly - tests to detect cancers'. That's the title of Dr Ren Stonecutter's talk today, in the American Cancer Society in Second Life Auditorium.

One in three of us will get cancer in our lifetime. And those of us who have been diagnosed with one cancer still have a chance of being diagnosed with a second 'primary cancer'.

So this talk is relevant to us all.

Join us at 1.30pm SL time in the auditorium to learn more.
