OSLC has begun a Cancer Companions Ministry. Individuals have completed training and are now offering a support group that meets on Tuesday nights at 6:30pm in the Library.
Cancer Companions provide a safe place where you can talk about the things that concern you, worry you or infuriate you. More than a listening ear and an understanding heart, Cancer Companions bring the gifts of prayer, scriptures and devotionals to lift up families affected by cancer in their time of need. This is done through Christian cancer support groups and one-to-one peer counseling.
Cancer Companions may have survived cancer treatment themselves or been the care giver for a loved one who faced cancer. Some cancer survivors are not directly impacted by cancer but they have a tender heart for the difficulties of cancer families. Cancer Companions care.
